Sezame LOGIN protects your PC from unauthorized access. You will never have to change your password again, your biometric ID (fingerprint or face recognition) will unlock your computer in the future. Your regular login will continue to be available, but you will receive a sezame-Security-Message (configurable fraud-alert) if someone logs on to your computer with a password. Your biometric ID will NEVER be stored by sezame, it will always remain on your smartphone. From now on, your password can never be stolen or lost again. Simple – sezame! Sezame LOGIN is free for customers. No matter whether you use your computer for private or professional purposes. For companies there is a business solution available, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Attention: Please enable push notifications on your smartphone for the best user experience.
By following these simple guidelines, you can make best use of our solution
1. After clicking the sezame LOGIN button on your PC you will receive a pop-up message (if you enabled it) on your smartphone screen. If you didn’t enable the notification message for the sezame app the actual authentication request is directly in the sezame app itself.
2. Our solution only works if both of the devices, your PC/Laptop on the one hand and your smartphone on the other, have internet connectivity.
3. If the notification is not received on the smartphone, it could be that your smartphone is connected to a Wi-Fi network which requires you to accept usage terms etc. before using it, so preferably use our solution on your smartphone in combination with a mobile network.
4. Try to keep the missed notifications window on our home screen clean (there might be missed authentications listed there). First check which authentications you missed (could be password logins that were detected) before starting to accept new authentications!
That’s all. Simple and Secure. Sezame!
