Frequently Asked Question

If Plurilock analyzes pointer interaction, does Plurilock know the things I've clicked on, tapped on, or visited?

No. Plurilock does not use the actual contents of pointer input for authentication, but rather the characteristic times and patterns in pointer movement, accelerations, angles, and clicks.

This gesture and timing data is numeric, yet highly individualistic, and identifies users without relying on the links, buttons, widgets, or other on-screen elements that are meaningful to humans. For this reason, Plurilock is generally privacy-safe and does not "know" what you've clicked on.
