The integration of conventional clothes with flexible electronics is a promising solution as a future‐generation computing platform. However, the problem of user authentication on this novel platform is still underexplored. This work uses flexible sensors to track human posture and achieves the goal of user authentication. We capture human movement pattern by four stretch sensors around the shoulder and one on the elbow. We introduce the long short‐term memory fully convolutional network (LSTM‐FCN), which directly takes noisy and sparse sensor data as input and verifies its consistency with the user's predefined movement patterns. The method can identify a user by matching movement patterns even if there are large intrapersonal variations. The authentication accuracy of LSTM‐FCN reaches 98.0%, which is 10.7% and 6.5% higher than that of dynamic time warping and dynamic time warping dependent.
