The importance of increasing online security around personal information has risen due to the increase in cyber attacks and data breaches over recent years.



  • What is Trust API and How it calculates your Trust Score?

          A while ago, the company implemented a similar idea, called "smart lock" on devices running Android 5.0 and higher.

Smart Locks automatically locks or unlocks your device when you are in a trusted location, or when your device recognizes your facial characteristics or have a secure Bluetooth device connected.

This Trust API is an upgraded and advanced version of Smart Lock. Trust API works by using the phone's sensors to collect data about you such as your voice, typing patterns, the particular times and locations you might use an app, and even facial recognition to derive a "Trust Score".

This Trust Score is then used to authenticate you without any need to enter a password or PIN, the head of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) unit Daniel Kaufman said Friday at its Google I/O developer conference.

 


In case your Trust Score is not high enough, apps could revert to asking users for their passwords.

However, the company also said previously that different apps could require different Trust Scores. For example, your bank could require a higher score than a gaming app.
This Trust Score is the new "Trust Score API" or "Trust API" that the company hopes to put in developers' hands by the end of the year.
