Jun 28, 2016 LogMeOnce Password Manager Goes Password-less with PhotoLogin

Patented PhotoLogin technology enables users to login with a photo in 3 easy steps – snap a picture, approve the authentication request and instantly access – all without typing or remembering a password

Washington D.C. – June 28, 2016 LogMeOnce, puntako hodeian oinarritutako segurtasun irtenbide bat, today announces PhotoLogin, an unrivaled feature which enables users to log in to any website with a photo. Users can gain access to their account with PhotoLogin by taking a photo on their desktop and approving (edo arbuiatzeko) aukeratu fidagarria mugikor batekin argazkian. Unlike using a traditional password, logging in with a photo prevents anyone from stealing your password and eliminates the need to remember or frequently change passwords.

“Traditional passwords are risky, typically weak and are more susceptible to be hacked or duplicated,” says Kevin Shahbazi, LogMeOnce zuzendari nagusia. “Even protecting passwords with a second factor of authentication (2FA) doesn’t make you invincible to hacks. By default, PhotoLogin adds a third-factor of authentication and lets users authenticate themselves to ensure that login information cannot be duplicated, making this feature one of the strongest layers of defense against hackers.”

PhotoLogin works in three frictionless steps:

  • Click the PhotoLogin icon on the LogMeOnce desktop home screen to snap a picture of yourself or anything near you to reference your current location identifiable to you.
  • The photo is instantly sent to your mobile device for you to verify or reject the image. You can swipe left or right for data such as IP Address, GPS Location and time stamp to tell you when and where the picture was taken.
  • Once you have clicked “Allow” on your mobile device, you are free to start browsing on a desktop.

Unlike Facial Recognition products, LogMeOnce’s PhotoLogin captures the entire scene of a photo, rather than user’s face and it doesn’t require a user to blink or wink. If you don’t want to snap a photo of yourself, you can take a photo of any object nearby like the mug you are drinking out of. LogMeOnce’s use of a photo’s background and scene information adds to the dynamics of image accuracy, distinction and secure Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).The PhotoLogin process happens in seconds and ensures the user is in control of their account. If you detect an intruder, you have the power to block them, rather than your account being authenticated by a robot or server.

“Without sacrificing the user experience, PhotoLogin replaces passwords with a more secure solution that is not restricted by degree of accuracy,” added Mike Shahbazi, President and CTO of LogMeOnce. “Our patented technology is more intelligent than facial-recognition tools. Other providers use facial recognition technology that requires users to position their face in a specific rectangle to measure their features and compare them to a saved photo in the database, which takes a substantial amount of time. If the way your face was positioned is off, it will be rejected – making the login process a hassle. LogMeOnce recognizes objective data, which is a factual observation, measured data and point-of-view obtained through the photo’s presence, background, ambiance, shades, color, time, etab. The best part is, no one can duplicate your photo and it takes just seconds.”

The new LogMeOnce PhotoLogin update is free and is currently available on the browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari on Windows and Mac, as well as iOS and Android platforms. For more information about LogMeOnce and PhotoLogin, bisitatu www.LogMeOnce.com.
