How it works

TypingDNA’s RESTful Authentication API solution matches typing patterns captured during user interactions. The real-time result is a JSON response that validates the identity of the user using one of our recorder libraries on the front-end and making request calls to our authentication API service on the back-end, authenticated with a dedicated apiKey and apiSecret for each user.

What problem does the company solve?

Online frauds are on the rise and businesses across the world lose USD 4.20 trillion each year. Existing prevention methods often create negative user experience causing customer churn. TypingDNA’s proprietary artificial intelligence based technology is an innovative, behavioural biometrics solution aiming to solve both user experience and security drawbacks.
