1. An apparatus comprising:

  • at least one processor of at least one computer in electronic communication with at least one server over an electronic communications network;

    a non-transitory tangible computer readable storage medium storing instructions which are configured to, when executed by the at least one processor, cause the at least one processor to;

    receive at least one item of identity verification data over the network from a device;

    enable at least one service on the device based at least in part on a match between the at least one item of identity verification data received and at least one other item of identity verification data obtained previously, wherein the at least one service comprises a game to be played on the device;

    while the at least one service is enabled, receive physical biometric data obtained over the network by a biometric sensor of the device, in which the physical biometric data is detected directly from the biometric sensor of the device, in which the received physical biometric data is different from any gameplay input received from a player pursuant to the game played on the device;

    subsequent to receiving the data and while the at least one service is enabled, receive data detected directly by the biometric sensor of the device, wherein the data comprises an indication of a null reading detected directly by the biometric sensor; and

    based at least in part on receiving (i) the physical biometric data and (ii) the data that comprises an indication of a null reading detected directly by the biometric sensor, output a prompt comprising a request to provide identity verification data.
