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 DC. - giugno 28, 2016 - LogMeOnce, a leading cloud-based security solution, annuncia oggi PhotoLogin, una caratteristica senza password senza pari che consente agli utenti di accedere a qualsiasi sito web con una foto. As one of four secure login options offered by LogMeOnce, including Fingerprint Biometrics, PIN and password, LogMeOnce’s patented and patent-pending “PasswordLess PhotoLogin” technology revolutionizes login and authentication behavior, greatly improves security and reduces the risk of hackers by employing Multi-Factor Authentication(MFA) that users authenticate themselves. Gli utenti possono accedere al proprio conto con PhotoLogin per scattare una foto sul proprio desktop e l'approvazione (o rifiutare) la foto su un dispositivo mobile di fiducia scelto. A differenza di utilizzo di una password tradizionale, accesso con una foto impedisce a chiunque di rubare la password ed elimina la necessità di ricordare o di frequente modificare le password.
“Traditional passwords are risky, typically weak and are more susceptible to be hacked or duplicated,” says Kevin Shahbazi, CEO of LogMeOnce. “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.
Each photo expires in 60 seconds and self-destructs after the very first use, so your photo “password” is unique every single time. 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, dati misurati e il punto di vista ottenute attraverso la presenza della foto, sfondo, ambiance, shades, colore, time, eccetera. The best part is, no one can duplicate your photo and it takes just seconds.”
