Securely Collecting User Inputs At A Device

Multiple devices are available in the market that take a user's voice command as input. Providing voice commands as inputs to a device is not preferred from a security point of view. For example, performing a financial transaction in a crowded place by providing voice commands as input is a serious risk from a security point of view. Thus, a method and system is needed for securely collecting user inputs at a device.

Disclosed is a method and system for securely collecting inputs from a user at a device by detecting the user's lip movement. The device can be, but need not be limited to, a

watch, a smartphone and a pair of eyeglasses.

The method and system collects the user's lip movement as input to the device by using at least one camera associated with the device.

Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 illustrate examples of securely collecting inputs from the user at a mobile device and at a smart watch respectively.
