BYOT: Bring Your Own Thumb!

FREE BYOT: Bring Your Own Thumb! version Download

The goal of BYOT is to give you a 'shoulder-surfing safe' authentication mechanism based on existing metaphor of Android's grid unlock interface.

When you draw 'grid lock pattern' by trying 8 times with consistently similar timing, trajectory, and pressure, then it will find your genuine microscopic patterns.

BYOT also provides you a yet another unlock competition experience among many people in the world.

Here are the steps you may follow;

1) Install BYOT on your phone.

2) Launch the BYOT app, and select and input your string ID, and click to "start".
- We used your device id, so this is reason why this application requires access to Telephony Service.

3) First of all, you need to Calibrate your finger and touchscreen behavior, by
- 1. Put your Thumb's base down with pressure (2 seconds)
- 2. Put your Little finger tip's end down without pressure (2 seconds)

4) Then, you can create your own lock pattern by recording the same pattern 8-times
(with consistently similar timing and trajectory, otherwise it will reject to create a pattern).
- usually, this step must be done via long-term period (like 2~3 weeks),
but this application will be just trying in a short-time.

5) As soon as you get your own pattern, you can review, unlock, and try to unlock the other patterns.
- when you succeed to unlock, you'll earn a point,
but, you'll lose the point when you failed to unlock.
(BYOT uses the "Elo rating" mechanism)

6) Please try to unlock as many as you can!

PS: The purpose of this application is to do an active user study in the real world users. All the collected data will be completely anonymized, so that there won't be any privacy leakages because of this application.

Thanks, and best,
