Frequently Asked Question

If Plurilock analyzes keyboard interaction, does Plurilock know the things I've typed?

No. Plurilock does not use the actual contents of keyboard input for authentication, but rather the characteristic times and patterns between and during keystrokes.

This keytiming data is numeric, yet highly individualistic, and identifies users without relying on words, names, commands, or other content that are meaningful to humans. For this reason, Plurilock is generally privacy-safe and does not “know” what you've typed.
