Tenbeo developed an authentication protocol based on people's heartbeats. This technology prevents identity theft, fraud and deep fakes as the human heartbeat is impossible to forge. By using a person's unique heart rate patterns to verify their identity, it’s more difficult for fraudsters to impersonate someone else and gain unauthorized access to sensitive information or perform fraudulent transactions. The technology ensures that only authorized individuals can access personal accounts or perform transactions. It becomes significantly harder for fraudsters to impersonate someone else and carry out fraudulent activities.
