TypingDNA announces single-call API for biometric authentication, free unlimited developer plan
TypingDNA has updated its Authentication API to significantly reduce complexity for developers integrating typing biometrics with a single API call, while maintaining full functionality.
A new free developer plan has also been announced by TypingDNA to provide unlimited API calls and users to software developers.
Written communication continues to increase as a primary means of communication, and TypingDNA cites American Psychological Association research suggesting that three-quarters of people under 30 prefer written communication over phone calls. This, in turn, requires new methods for identity verification and securing online interactions.
“We’re excited to bring typing biometrics to a broader developer audience,” writes CEO Raul Popa in the announcement. “Developers are increasingly empowered with technical decision-making within their organizations — they know what to look for in a solution, and at a time when critical services have gone digital, integration costs and complexity shouldn’t stand in the way of protecting users. Our simplified API and unlimited, free Developer plan address both of these potential barriers. Our goal with this release is to make typing biometrics accessible to all developers.”
Current customers and developers can access the new Authentication API as the /auto API, consolidating the previously multi-step authentication process with a one-call product. Optimized and pre-configured settings further reduce the complexity of implementing typing biometrics, while the back-end behavioral biometrics engine remains the same.
“We chose to explore TypingDNA’s biometrics solutions in both the Elrond platform and future products to improve security and remove the friction affecting many blockchain platforms,” says Lucian Mincu, co-founder and CIO at Elrond Network. “We’re amazed to hear about the simplified integration enabled by the new /auto one-call API. We consider simplicity an asset in choosing a project’s authentication method.”
