For many years, affective design has been considered in the design of mobile phone functions for mobile phone manufacturers to differentiate their products compared to their competitors. Although, the newest Google Android OS mobile phone provides various biometric authentication methods to authenticate the mobile phone user, there are a few research regarding mobile authentication in the aspect of affect. In this project, we hypothesised that there might be different affects appearing between each mobile security authentication, especially biometric security authentication. Thus, participants were recruited to measure affect through the self-assessment manikin method using mobile security authentication from registering to executing on various situations. Then we analysed if there is a difference in the valence and arousal aspects. Finally, we propose affective values for each type of mobile security authentication and suggest how aspects of affective design could be improved.
