Security for Android Mobile Phones using Biometric Authentication against Factory Reset
Suchita Rane | Dr. Narendra Shekokar 
Abstract: Android Mobile devices are secured using various mechanisms like pattern, pin, and password. Biometric Authentication is an upcoming technology accepted by various android mobile manufactures for better security and with change in technology, time this mechanisms are vulnerable to various attacks like factory reset. Factory Reset will erase all the settings in the device and makes device vulnerable for hackers to misuse it. This paper proposes a mechanism to overcome against hard reset as well as factory reset through settings by allowing person to perform factory reset operation only after passing biometric authentication and using correct back-up code. Mobile device can be more secured by using biometric authentication with other factors like security question, alternate email-id, and authentication code generation algorithm.
