Well-Litigated Authentication Patents Asserted by Third NPE Owner

April 12, 2020

Altpass LLC, an entity formed in Texas at the end of last year, has filed its first lawsuits, accusing BBK Electronics (OnePlus Technology) (2:20-cv-00105) and Fujitsu (2:20-cv-00096) of infringing up to three patents through the provision of certain computing devices, highlighting the OnePlus 3/3T and Fujitsu’s Stylistic Q739 Hybrid Tablet PC in each complaint. The patents generally relate to authenticating computer users through “user-selectable signatures”, with AltPass’s infringement allegations targeting login features of the accused devices that use, e.g., a fingerprint, pattern, password, or PIN. The family of patents asserted in this new campaign is no stranger to litigation, having been asserted by two prior NPE owners.
