Tuesday 3 June 2014 11:57 CET | News

IBM has allegedly patented a system which analyses users’ click patterns to detect fraud online, online media outlet Yahoo News unveils.

According to the source, the technique is aimed at detecting fraud online to prevent the theft of log-in credentials and other sensitive information, particularly in ecommerce and banking.

The company has declared that by using this system will be easier to detect thefts by identifying the areas of a page that users click on and whether they navigate with a mouse or keyboard or by analyzing the way they swipe through screens on a smartphone or tablet. The technology could identify sudden changes in online behaviour, which would then trigger a secondary authentication measure, such as a security question. It would work on a mobile device or computer.
