Apple Touch ID Security Will Get Tracking Finger Movement Option

Apple Touch ID security is going to be enhanced. The iPhone maker has plans to add tracking finger movement and offer even better customer protection. The news that the California-based company is going to change something with its Touch ID fingerprint sensor surfaced when the ‘fruit’ giant shared a patent.

In the document that was published by AuthenTec co-founder Dale Setlak, there is information about the patent app that can improve and make the current security option more stable and secured. This program should allow pairing the iDevice Touch ID sensor [you might like to take a look at the first batch of fingerprint sensor on iPhone 6] with the special combination lock or other security measures. iPhone owner will have to move his or her finger repeating the pattern that appears on-screen in order to unlock the iOS gadget.

No one can say right now how exactly the patent will work. The patent mentions different combination locks that appear on the display where the owner of the smartphone / tablet has to rotate the finger over the digital combination to unlock.

The patent was filed over a year ago, in the summer of 2013, and the technology was acquired by Apple back in 2012 though developes first learned about Touch ID in iOS 7.1 code.

It is surely interesting how the better security authentication can be implemented into Touch ID sensor and when Apple can take this step.
