High security voice unlock solution for smartphones


A Spanish company, focused on protection systems and biometric voice technologies, has developed a high security voice unlock solution for smartphones. It allows the user to unlock the smartphone with free speech that works only with his or her voice. The company is looking for cooperation under license agreements.

Partner expertise sought

- Type of partner sought: Hardware manufacturers and operating systems developers. - Specific area of activity of the partner: Mobile sector. - Task to be performed: To incorporate security voice unlock solution this solution within the partner smartphones or mobile operating systems in order to offer to their clients a more advanced and secure final product (smartphone in the case of mobile manufacturers or operating system in the case of developers). The kind or partnership sought is license agreement.


Nowadays, one of the mains concerns within the mobile technologies sector is security. It has led to the development of different security measures that restrict access to the smartphone to any person but the user; for example regular digit password, face recognition, fingerprint, etc. In this context, the Spanish company has developed a high security voice unlock solution for smartphones that allows to easily unlock the smartphone in a secure way, just saying a few digits or any text chosen by the user. Main features regarding this solution are the following: - It is an additional secure screen lock based on voice biometrics that works together with some of the existing screen lock mechanisms provided by the mobile device operating system. -It supports Android system. -It does not require internet connection, wi-fi or any other way of communication, so no data is sent from the smartphone. It is due to the computationally efficient mobile core that allows to carry out all the calculations locally in the device, from the initial voiceprint creation during enrolment to the later voice verifications. The company is looking for international partners within the mobile sector (hardware manufacturers and mobile operating systems developers) in order to integrate this technology within their products under a license agreement.

Advantages and innovations

-Main innovation regarding this solution is that it analyses the voice from free speech of the smartphone user, which means that the user is the only person that can unlock it by voice and he or she doesn't need to rely on passwords or a fixed sentence that can be recorded and used later by attackers. There are other voice unlock solutions in the market, but their security is remarkably lower, since most of them don't use actual voice biometrics technology and all of them rely on fixed text. Therefore, anyone that knows the password text can say it or play a recording to unlock the smartphone.
