But now we can say it with authenticity as Apple has officially acquired registered trademarks of “AuthenTec” and “KeepSafe”.
Not to mention that AuthenTec is a firm specialized in fingerprint solutions and “KeepSafe” is its technology to keep the data safe from being stolen or from irrelevant viewing.
According to PatentlyApple, the US tech giant gained the trademarks on March 8 from US Patent and Trademark Office.
“AuthenTec’s website segment for Identify Management is now closed stating that “products are no longer available,” the site further said predicting future use of the technology in Apple’s products.
The official description as copied by Patently Apple is as follow:
“KeepSafe is an additional fingerprint enabled software application purchased from AuthenTec Store. KeepSafe allows you to encrypt your files in a protected folder. The folder can be shown on your Desktop or in Computer. This folder will not be visible for other users sharing the computer.”
