Title: ACCESSING A USER EQUIPMENT USING A BIOMETRIC SENSOR CONCURRENTLY WITH AN AUTHENTICATION PATTERN
Abstract:
The present application relates to authenticating a user of a user equipment (UE). Specifically, the described aspects include presenting for display an authentication pattern on a display of the UE after receiving an input representing a scan of a fingerprint. The authentication pattern may be displayed while the fingerprint sensor continues scanning the finger. Further, the UE may receive a second input representing a removal of the finger from the fingerprint sensor and an authentication pattern characteristic of the authentication pattern. In some aspects, the authentication pattern may be a visual timer, a visual color pattern, and/or a visual shape pattern. The UE may compare the fingerprint scan with a stored fingerprint and the authentication pattern characteristic with a stored authentication pattern characteristic to determine whether to permit the user to access the UE in an unlocked state.
