Strong security, courtesy of biometrics.
As mobile users become increasingly more sophisticated, it is essential that device security keeps pace. Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology improves authentication through biometrics. By capturing the unique 3D characteristics of the user’s fingerprint, Snapdragon Sense ID technology offers a robust security method. This gives the mobile user a consistent experience. And by removing password authentication, the user no longer needs to memorize yet another code.
So much more than a password.
The best password is the one we’re born with. Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology uses innovative ultrasonic technology to create a detailed map of the minute details of the fingerprint and detect liveness—engineered to make both our solution and a user’s authentication difficult to imitate. Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology is based on the same superior, proven ultrasonic technology developed for the U.S. government and its Appendix F-level applications.
Go ahead, get your hands dirty.
With the ability to power through moisture or other common contaminants, Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology is designed to give users a consistent, reliable authentication experience even when sunscreen, lotion, and moisture would otherwise get in the way.
Design outside the box.
With the ability to scan through glass, plastic and certain metals, Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology enables device manufacturers to explore and create sleeker, differentiated devices — meaning more exciting possibilities for products both today and tomorrow.
Home is where the hardware is.
Like other Qualcomm Security Solutions, Snapdragon Sense ID biometrics technologies benefit from being based on our Qualcomm® SecureMSM™ hardware-based foundation. Plus, integration with FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance biometrics protocols also enables device manufacturers to keep fingerprint data on the device, not in the cloud, and to connect more securely to FIDO-enabled websites, online accounts and devices.
