TT Correspondent |  |  16 Sep 2013

Ever dreamed of your smartphone recognizing you when you tap or swipe on its touch screen? This is a reality now as US scientist Cheng Bo and his team at the Illinois Institute of Technology have developed a software called Silent-Sense which can identify the user the way he/she taps and swipes on a touchscreen. The technique uses.

According to a NewScientist, the software has the capability to record patterns of pressure, duration and fingertip size and position each user exhibits when interacting with their phone or tablet.

"Different users, dependent on sex and age among other things, will have different habits in interacting," the report has quoted Bo as saying.

The accuracy of the soft ware is so perfect that it can identify the owner of the smartphone with 99% certainty. Tests were conducted with 100 users told to use the smartphone's touchscreen as they would normally. This results were achieved with no more than 10 taps.

The power saver Silent-Sense stops indentify the user once the apps like games are on, but automatically switches on one the user start accessing his/her email or SMS, the report said.
