Seal's Mission


Seal has invented a way to recognize individuals by the way they hold their smartphones.


The method analyzes motion data that is collected from accelerometers on the device and determines if an individual currently holding the phone is the authorized user of the device.


The company has filed patents for methods of unobtrusively recognizing a smartphone user from motion data while he holds his device. 



The company is currently conducting research into individual differences in motion characteristics of multiple users and is developing efficient algorithms for user identification on smartphones. 



Seal's mission is to deliver a range of innovative products for providing privacy without passwords by exploiting the ubiquitous capability of smartphones to detect motion.
