Sezame provides you with a new way of secure logins to all your existing password protected accounts (as soon as trust is enabled) by leveraging your mobile phone for primary authentication where possible (lower security needs) and for secondary (two-factor) authentication where necessary (higher security needs).
Sezame requires virtually no end-user configuration and no hardware installation at the trust partners’ site: just a smartphone with the sezame app (available in your favorite app store as a free app) plus a little piece of software (provided to trusted partners via our powerful web APIs/web SDK). Easily unleash any biometric authentication capable smartphone (e.g. iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy) and free millions of users from the sheer endless maze of passwords they have to remember.
Sezame allows the end-user to easily enable login verification to his favorite password-secured websites, cloud-enabled storages or applications and thousands of other possible use cases via his smartphone fingerprint authentication or to allow added transaction verification (for example financial transactions on the Internet) to any of his trusted websites.
