Claim of US Patent No. 10,659,470

1. A method for enabling media guidance application operations based on biometric data, the method comprising:accessing a plurality of rules, using control circuitry, wherein each rule of the plurality of rules is associated with (a) a respective biometric state of a user, (b) a respective pre-defined geographical location of the user, and (c) a respective media guidance application operation;
determining, using the control circuitry, a current geographical location of the user;
determining, using the control circuitry, that the current geographical location of the user corresponds to a pre-defined geographical location;
identifying a rule of the plurality of rules associated with the pre-defined geographical location;
determining, using the control circuitry, that a current biometric state of the user at the current geographical location corresponds with a biometric state of the user associated with the identified rule;
and
in response to determining that the current biometric state of the user corresponds to the biometric state of the user associated with the identified rule, enabling the media guidance application operation associated with the identified rule.
