Google IO announcements about "Personal unlocking" / "Personal unlock"


  • NFC Ring Team

    From wired: "But what about lock screens? There’s a new feature called personal unlocking that looks at signals like location, bluetooth and even voiceprint to authenticate a user. It lets you unlock the phone just by swiping, so you don’t have to unlock the phone with a pin code in certain situations. If it can’t see, say, your bluetooth watch, it will prompt for a PIN."

    It will be interesting to know how this affects us.



  • I can only find information about it in the Google I/O keynote, but that is not very surprising.

    If you want to see the segment, it's 53 mins into the keynote

    But there's not really much info.

    I couldn't find a specific session during the conference about personal unlocking but it seems reasonable it will be included in at least one presentation.

    Is it only me or are they copying the windows phone 8 style?



  • I saw this and just had to run over here and check if you guys had reached out to Google about NFC integration into this system.

    I really hope it does.

    Our contacts at Google were not willing to say if it will/wont support NFC... Anyone able to dig further?
