New IBM Patent For Identifying You By The Way You Click Around On Websites

•, By Francie Diep

IBM has a new patent for a program that watches your every move on a device, the company has announced. The patent is for techniques to recognize people by the way they click, swipe and navigate on websites.

Do you tend go straight to a certain tab when you first visit Do you ever navigate using your arrow keys? (Who does this?) If the app notices that a person, while signed into his account, isn't navigating like usual, it can do something about it. For example, it could ask for him to answer security questions. This level of security might not be so crucial for Popular Science, but it's attractive for banking and shopping online. An app based on these techniques could even recognize and repel spambots, the patent suggests.
