Biometrics in the gaming industry
Game developers strive to improve player experience by designing immersive environments. A key element of this immersion is the integration of seamless payment methods that allow players to purchase in-game items, upgrade their characters or access premium content without interrupting the flow of the game.
Fingerprint scanners and facial recognition systems are already common and provide a safe and convenient alternative to traditional systems and the use of passwords and PIN codes. Thanks to this, game fans can continuously enjoy the game thanks to biometric authentication at any stage. However, the use of behavioral biometrics in the gaming industry will allow us to go a step further - recognizing people will be possible based on their unique behaviors. These could be typing patterns or mouse movements. This means that the user's natural interaction with the game interface will create a unique behavioral signature that can be used to authenticate the user in subsequent game sessions.
