Smartphone security is a great concern for security of its information. More than 70% of Smartphone users keep their valuable information like Files, Pictures, Calendars and many more in their smartphone and it has raised the question of security. Smartphone manufactures companies give different kind of authentication methods for security purpose of smartphone. But, as far as security is concerned, still it’s not secure as it is supposed to be. Most of the manufactures like Nokia, Samsung, and Apple etc. manufacture smartphone products with gesture based authentication along with other simple techniques. This project presents a new hybrid method for smartphone security. This hybrid method may consist of Tapping, Gesture and Sensor based technologies for authenticating mobile device users. My primary study showed me that it this new technique may be slower and more error prone than existing techniques. However, I believe with practice it could get faster and more accurate. Also, most users will be comfortable and all of them will feel more secured while using this new technique.
