So, this method will replace standard authentication, and will do it even more efficiently.

By the way, this method is not the only one, there is alsopassword protection, the so-called token authentication, as well as biometric identification. In this token, it is not some numbers that need to be driven into a smartphone or a ring (there is no place), but a special hand gesture. The ring recognizes this gesture and gives green light. The rest of the identification methods work in tandem with a smartphone, this is a well-known dactyloscope through a telephone and face-unlock. And another way the ring has is recognizing by gait.
