Understanding Feature Adoption Rates

To understand how often a feature is used, we need to calculate its Feature Adoption Rate (FAR). This metric compares the number of clients who use a feature to the total number of clients who could potentially use it. FAR is important because it helps us evaluate the popularity and effectiveness of each feature.

It's important to note that when calculating the FAR for all features, we exclude M2M clients.

FeatureCategoryFAR Calculation
Biometric AuthenticationAuthenticationFAR is determined by the proportion of clients who have enabled biometric authentication in their operational environments. For instance, if 70 out of 100 possible clients have enabled biometric authentication, the FAR would be 70%.
Bot Detector (Threat Guard)SecurityFAR is determined by the number of clients in production and operational environments with Bot detection turned on.
Federated GroupsExperience enhancementsFAR is determined by the proportion of clients in production and operational environments with Federated Group functionality enabled.
Google reCAPTCHASecurityFAR is calculated for clients in production environments with operational status who have Google reCAPTCHA enabled. This reflects the adoption among a targeted client base.
HoneypotSecurityFAR is determined by the number of non-M2M clients in production and operational environments that have implemented the Honeypot security system.
Impossible Travel Detector (Threat Guard)SecurityFAR is calculated by identifying clients in production and operational environments who use the Impossible Travel identification feature.
New Device Detector (Threat Guard)SecurityFAR is assessed by the number of clients in production and operational environments with the New Device identification feature turned on.
One-time PasswordAuthenticationFAR is assessed by counting clients in production environments with operational status who use the One-time Password as their authentication method.
Password Breach and StrengthSecurityFAR is determined by the proportion of clients in production and operational environments with the Password Breach and Strength feature turned on.
Password HistorySecurityFAR is calculated based on the number of clients in production and operational environments who utilize the Password History feature.
Progressive ProfilingExperience enhancementsFAR is calculated by assessing the number of clients in production and operational environments with Progressive Profiling turned on.
Risk Detector (Threat Guard)SecurityFAR is calculated based on clients in production and operational environments who use Fraud Score analysis for threat prevention.
Two-step Verification (Mandatory and Optional)SecurityFAR is calculated separately for each category, considering clients implementing the respective option. The overall FAR for Two-step Verification combines these individual rates to provide a comprehensive view.
Voice One-time PasswordAuthenticationThis FAR is calculated by identifying clients with Voice One-time Password enabled in production and operational environments.

These insights help identify trends, understand client preferences, and make informed decisions about future feature enhancements.
