Credit bureau Experian has joined forces with technology firm BioCatch to use behavioral biometrics to help its clients spot fraudsters applying for credit cards and other lending products online, the companies said on Friday.

BioCatch’s software, which was integrated in Experian’s fraud prevention platform, analyzes the way users interact with devices and websites by tracking a wide range of factors including how fast they type or the way they move their mouse across a web page. The information collected can help BioCatch determine whether users who are who they say they are or impostors.
