Transform standard Logins with behavioral and facial biometric two-factor authentication (2FA)

Shouldn't login be easier? We think so.

We all know that traditional login and password authentication has security and usability flaws. Strong passwords are easy to forget. Weak passwords introduce risk. Add to that the increasing occurrence of compromised account information, phishing attacks and easy access to PII data. Verifying identity based solely on something the user knows is no longer enough.

The problem with today's two-factor authentication.

Between social media and leaked data on the Dark Web, it’s easy for hackers to answer knowledge-based authentication questions.
SMS for 2FA is not secure. It’s susceptible to SIM swaps and messages may be intercepted by hackers.
Most 2FA introduces friction. Google reports that less than 10% of gmail users have adopted two-factor authentication.

A better way to 2FA

Many companies have introduced two-factor authentication (2FA) for an added layer of security. In addition to something you know, like your login and password, they require something you have. For example, a security code that is pushed via SMS to your mobile phone or an emailed link.

This added layer of security introduces additional effort for the user. At a minimum, it’s an extra step and delay in the verification process. In some circumstances it’s more frustrating. What if the email or mobile number you set for recovery has changed? In other circumstances, like an SMS code, it’s not as secure as you might think.

Reduce effort and improve security with biometric 2FA

A typical mobile or web app login process provides an opportunity to improve security — with no additional user effort.

IDSquared strengthens verification by adding a combination of facial recognition and behavioral biometrics to any standard login and password. It’s not only virtually effortless, but significantly more secure.

How does biometric 2FA login software work?

With biometric 2FA, a user simply types their login and password. IDSquared™ uses keystroke dynamics to verify their unique typing patterns to provide an additional layer of security. Additionally, facial recognition can be used to increase security even more. Enrollment can be done during a small number of interactions, happening transparently in the background with the user’s normal use of the app.
