    Nowadays smartphones have gained a huge popularity, ranging from using social applications to play video games. Smartphones also became more private than before. Although security mechanisms are provided from different smartphone providers, still smartphones are vulnerable to getting attacks regularly. Therefore, a security mechanism can help in protecting the smartphone from attackers. We propose a security mechanism that can help in protecting smartphone while at the same time enjoy using it such as playing a video game. The authentication system is designed in a way that can read raw data directly from the touch sensor so, it’s not bound to be used in a particular application. Our system authenticates the user in the background without interrupting the user interaction with the smartphone. We tested the system in a real environment with two popular games. We managed to get 70% accuracy in one game and 90% in the other game.
