Biometrics involves the installing of fingerprint scanning and etc so as to make the phone more secure to the user.Also researchers were able to develop and use the accelerometer built into a smart phone to analyze gait. Their work suggests that, with further refinement, one of the ways your phone could know it's in the right hands would be simply by passively analyzing your walking style.
