Our Advantage

ConSift has an enormous advantage over all competitors because all competitors are still using older technologies that are unable to cater for touch screen devices natively and are not optimized for their use.

Consift team has a lot of published research work in the field and is the first to publish full-keyboard benchmarks conducted on touch screen devices, as well as to provide feature analysis which prove that features and algorithms used for desktop and physical keyboards are not efficient for mobile and touch screen use.

Publications focusing on touch-screen devices

Publications in keystroke dynamics
