Sick of usernames and passwords? Worried about security? Why not tap to sign-in instead? Symple ID makes signing in secure and simple.
While storing your credentials in the browser might seem convenient, security experts know that it isn't secure. But with the average person holding more than 20 online accounts, creating unique and strong passwords for each, and remembering them all, is nearly impossible.
Symple ID to the Rescue!
Thankfully there's Symple ID. Symple ID turns your smartphone into your online digital ID and provides a high security two-factor authentication solution that's fun and easy to use.
Using Symple ID is a lot like using “tap to pay” with your credit card or "mobile payment" on your smartphone. But instead of helping you to make a purchase securely, we help you to sign into sites and apps on your laptop or desktop securely.
Symple ID users simply tap their smartphone to a digital ID in order to sign into Banking Websites, Social Media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.), email (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.) and web apps (Salesforce, Netflix and Dropbox, etc.).
With Symple ID you carry your online credentials with you, fully encrypted on your phone, as opposed to online (a target for hackers) or on your laptop/desktop (not portable). And importantly we don't store any of your credentials on our servers.
Symple ID's two-factor authentication makes your accounts more secure; they can only be unlocked by using both your phone AND your unique digital ID.
Symple ID also allows you to increase your online security by using passwords that are strong (e.g., 100 randomly-generated letters, numbers and punctuation) and unique for all of your online accounts.
Symple ID also protects you against phishing attacks that try to steal your account information. When you follow a link to a site after clicking on it in an email or online, Symple ID automatically compares its address to the legitimate addresses stored in your ID. Even if a site "looks" like the real thing, Symple ID doesn't log you in if the addresses don't match.
What is Symple ID?
Symple ID is a "two-factor" login solution that protects your accounts by requiring two-factors (your phone and a digital ID) to be used together to unlock them.
Symple ID consists of an encrypted application on your smartphone, a unique near-field communication ID (wristband, key-fob, sticker, or wallet card) and an extension to your Chrome browser.
How Does it Work?
As you surf the web or use web applications, Symple ID automatically detects logins.
As you fill-in logins for websites, or web applications, Symple ID allows you to automatically store them with a simple tap of your phone to your ID.
The next time you visit a stored site or application, Symple ID will prompt you to "tap to sign-in".
When you tap to sign-in with Symple ID, your credentials are sent encrypted from your phone through a secure server to your browser for login. Nothing is stored to the laptop/desktop you are using; making Symple ID perfect for use at home, on work or friend's computers or in internet cafes.
If you need to share login credentials from your Symple ID to another app on your phone, its as easy as a tap as well.
So there you have it. If you want to store a login; just tap. If you want to login automatically; just tap. If you want to share a login; just tap.
That's all there is to it :) we told you it was Symple!
Native back-up and restore functionality. This new release makes moving your credentials from one device to another, creating a back-up just in case, and restoring credentials after an OS change, a snap. Back-up files are encrypted using your unique ID card/hand tag/wristband/etc. and can be saved to your device and then copied to your SD card, laptop, Dropbox, shared by NFC, etc.
