Biometrics-based security, such as fingerprint authentication, is proven to be both more secure and convenient than passwords, making fingerprint sensing an increasingly common — and product-differentiating — feature in smartphones, tablets and PCs.

However, fingerprint authentication also raises security concerns that can best be addressed with protections purpose-built for biometrics. Synaptics helps ensure biometric data protection through the SentryPoint Security Suite of features and architectures that accommodate the full range of market needs.

  • Most common biometric authentication methods rely on partial information to authenticate a user’s identity.  Biometric authentication and its uses in modern-day has a number of advantages:
  • High security and assurance​
  • User Experience – Convenient and fast​
  • Non-transferrable ​
  • Spoof Proof ​

Your fingerprint data is stored securely and never leaves your Pixel or Nexus phone. Your fingerprint data isn’t shared with Google or any apps on your device. Apps are notified only whether your fingerprint was verified.

A fingerprint is a group of information that can be used to detect the software, network protocols, operating systems, or hardware devices.


Synaptics fingerprint sensors provide smartphones with security, convenience and fast authentication.​


Synaptics SecurePad™ incorporates a Natural ID fingerprint sensor with the full range of feature, technology and benefits.​
