That is why the friends OS New Horizon , a leading developer of biometric authentication technology company developed in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Madrid the app OSiguard, an Android app that takes advantage of this ingenuity to protect and secure any mobile device platform with a creative, simple and potentially effective approach. Without the need to install any kind of additional hardware, the operation OSiguard is simple and unique; using its biometric technology to the pre-configured application activation, OSiguard allows us to design our own“signature identification” by creating a pattern of movement in the air when making the smartphone hand. It is recorded and remembered by the app while it is active, so that if a user outside the phone thief takes an audible alarm to alert about the incident is automatically activated.
The application available for free on Google Play, once installed allows us to activate a Widget with which we can activate the alarm OSiguard simple and direct way, once the app settings completed, will have been a PIN access code and security question and can use these alternatives as a method of deactivating the alarm if the movement pattern can not replicate exactly the same.
