Mobile application developer, BluePlanet Apps, has announced it is developing a biometric security application for the Android mobile operating system, according to an Android Headlines article.
Officials from the developer presented their new app, called BioLock, at the Apps World Conference where representatives from Samsung, who have expressed interest in having the app on their phones, were present.
BioLock operates via face recognition, iris recognition or password input to secure one’s phone or specific apps or functions on the phone. Additionally, the face recognition feature utilizes blink and pupil dilatation detection to prohibit someone from using a picture of the phone’s owner to gain access to sensitive areas.
While the development team is focusing on developing for Android, they plan on releasing versions for Windows Phone 7 and the Apple mobile OS. As well as porting BioLock to multiple operating systems, BluePlanet is also looking into the possibility of a more robust corporate version to pair with their consumer release.
