Oregon Patent of the Month – March 2021

As our technology advances, so must the ways we protect our data and information. Passwords are a less secure form or protection these days as people are readily able to hack or circumvent them. Acceptto Corp. has designed a secure authentication method which reduces the ability for unauthorized users to access your accounts.

Using biometrics and behaviour, the system will determine whether the person attempting to access the account is the authorized user. As the system learns from the users behavior, it can build a profile of what is normal for the user. The system uses a wireless “I Am Here” API signal which announces the users presence based on their smartphone location. If the user enters a hotel for instance, the API starts the process of continuous authentication while the user entity device interacts with services at that location. If an authentication request is deemed “untrustworthy”, access will be denied or require additional authentication steps.
