BehavioSec Granted U.S. Patents for Mobile Authentication and Social Engineering Detection

Protect yourself from online attacks that threaten your identity, your files, your system, and your financial well-being.


SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BehavioSec, the industry pioneer and technology leader for behavioral biometrics and continuous authentication, today announced the successful grant of two additional U.S. patents for its innovative method of verifying user identity and detecting fraud. Since its 2008 founding, BehavioSec has successfully been granted 24 U.S. patents, demonstrating the company’s continual commitment to the innovation and development of behavioral biometrics technology. With this new addition to their patent portfolio, BehavioSec technology can better protect digital identities and consumers on mobile devices from increasingly sophisticated, social engineering attacks – helping stop fraud before the damage is done.

Today, BehavioSec already protects over 180 million people and 20 billion annual transactions across the globe.

The technology behind this patent allows BehavioSec customers to double the actionable intelligence gleaned from each Android keystroke – without friction, latency, or intrusive data collection.

For social engineering scams (when legitimate customers are tricked or coached into fraudulent transactions), the new BehavioSec patent US20210117979A1 improves the detection and blocking of these scams at scale. It is a further advancement of the company’s 2019 patent US20200118138A1 that enhanced accuracy and added new methods of detection on mobile devices. With this defensive layer, institutions have greater sensitivity and visibility into subtle behavioral anomalies resulting from stress, hesitation, and…
