The Research and Development Team associated with Brave has unveiled zkSense which is a spectacular privacy-preserving mechanism to be used primarily for bot detection on smartphones. With the help of device sensors like the gyroscope and the accelerometer, zkSense can measure the device’s moving patterns and understand whether a human or a bot is interacting with an app.

The results presented are highly accurate, as zkSense can even pick-up artificial device movements; by using zero-knowledge proofs ensures that only a remote server records an action initiated by a human or a bot. Dr. Johnny Ryan, the Chief Policy & Industry Relations Officer at Brave, and Dr. Orla Lynskey of the London School of Economics have addressed a letter to the Competition and Markets Authority [in the UK]. This document examines the corporate crimes committed by dominant digital companies who misuse their position in order to create cascading monopolies.

Cross-using data for nefarious purposes is a common occurrence when it involves major organizations. Even Twitter [whose CEO is a big fan of Bitcoin] uses targeted advertising when data was originally collected for two-factor authentication. Those at Brave hopes that European governments uphold the regulations necessary for strong privacy protection.
