Communications directly from LoginID

The partnership encompasses integration of LoginID’s FIDO2 and UAF certified Strong Customer Authentication platform and Ipsidy’s Biometric Identity Verification platform.

San Mateo, CA, and Long Beach, NY, September 2, 2020. - LoginID Inc. and Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) [OTCQB:IDTY] a leading provider of secure, mobile biometric identity solutions, have announced a partnership that provides new tools in the fight against fraud in online activities. By integrating Ipsidy’s biometric identity verification platform with the LoginID FIDO as a Service platform, both companies will now offer seamless FIDO2 authentication and login services, delivered with enhanced security and the highest level of identity trust.

Today, customers tend to use the same password across multiple sites allowing hackers to easily guess or steal credentials. According to the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, over 80% of hacking-related breaches leveraged weak or stolen passwords. Quickly becoming the de facto standard for authentication, FIDO2 enables easy and secure logins to websites and applications via biometrics, mobile devices and/or FIDO Security Keys. FIDO compliant solutions eliminate passwords by using the combination of biometric verification and device authentication via cryptographic security, thereby securing and speeding interactions between customers and enterprises. FIDO2’s simpler login experiences, backed by strong cryptographic security, are far superior to passwords, protecting users from phishing, all forms of password theft, and replay attacks.

Under this agreement, the companies will combine LoginID’s FIDO platform with Ipsidy’s mobile identity platform services. Proof™ by Ipsidy offers a seamless identity verification experience supporting mobile identity document capture, liveness confirmation and facial biometric matching of a selfie to a credential photo. Ipsidy’s IDaaS platform can also automatically and without human intervention, validate the authenticity of an identity credential and confirm its possession by the rightful owner.

The combined solution allows an enterprise to remotely verify an account holder’s identity and bind that identity to their device during provisioning. This enhanced capability removes any uncertainty of the identity of the user transacting with the enterprise.

“By offering Ipsidy’s trusted identity verification services, we add a low-lift integration option for developers to seamlessly incorporate identity verification, during the end-user registration process before our FIDO2 or UAF biometric authentication is added to a user’s profile.” said Simon Law, CEO of LoginID. “The combined solution provides end-users with the most secure, frictionless identity verification and authentication experience on the market”.

“This strategic partnership creates a significant enhancement to the available identity authentication services and solves for many of the critical authentication requirements of customers around the world.” said Phillip Kumnick, CEO and Deputy Chairman of Ipsidy. “Binding a biometric identity under control of the enterprise with FIDO2 strong authentication creates a high assurance solution, delivered easily to any customer platform, with the highest level of accuracy and trust.”

The XV Legacy Transfer Platform automates the division of funds through trusted transactions —which are digitally notarized and irrefutable— and can be carried out among disparate, anonymous parties; without the need for a central authority or external enforcement mechanism. “We see a lot of flexibility around how we can easily integrate FIDO2 biometrics into our existing customer experience with LoginID” says Brian Kieller, CEO of ExecuVault.

NetCents Technology (CSE: N.C. / Frankfurt: 26N / OTCQB: NTTCF) provides a very simple way for merchants to accept cryptocurrency as a payment option for their customers. By integrating the NetCents crypto payment button, merchants have an easy way to process various cryptocurrencies and as a complement to traditional payment methods. “Security is top of mind for our merchants and their clients.

FroogalPay is middleware that provides software developers a quick and easy way to accept payments from within their application. “Our clients not only need the highest standard around security, but we need to ensure that we provide ways to increase conversions. With LoginID’s FIDO2 biometric button, there are various ways merchants can integrate into their customer journeys, making it simpler and safer for customers to pay while protecting merchants from fraud.” says Jonathan Reinsdorf, CEO of FroogalPay.

Global Asset Technology has developed an asset based crypto token that can be used towards traditional assets. “With LoginID we will secure our interactions for our institutional clients, who need simple, yet rigorous security that eliminates threats to their accounts from outside parties” says Steve Katmarian, CEO of Global Asset Technology.

We expect to see more and more companies like these recognizing how easy it is to protect their customers while at the same time improving the overall experience.” LoginID will be adding more functions and features for partners and developers as part of its self-serve digital onboarding experience, in the coming weeks.

Tools for seamless adoption

LoginID has built-in tools and best practice recommendations
to help you hit the ground running.

Buttons are a familiar UX tool and an essential part of the users' journey. Visual cues help people determine whether or not a button is clickable, so make sure to use proper visual signifiers on clickable elements so they look and function like buttons.

Size according to Fitts

Fitts Law is a UX principle that says you should make buttons big enough that they’re easy to click/tap and keep the distance short between the action and the action button.

A good rule of thumb from MIT Touch Labs: make your buttons a minimum of 10mm x 10mm. Make buttons mobile responsive and resize with percentage widths.

Color

The primary action on a page carries a stronger visual weight and should be the visually dominant button. Secondary actions (like Cancel or Go Back) should have less visual attraction.

A button is multi-state, therefore, consider the hover/tap states and active states of the button.

Shape

Effective button style is square with no corner radius or has rounded corners, depending on the site/app brand. Maintain consistency across controls so your user recognizes button elements.

Placement

Use standard UI patterns because conventional button placement improves discoverability. Using a standard layout will help users understand the purpose of each element - even if there is a button without other strong visual signifiers. Combining a standard layout with clean visual design and ample whitespace is better design.

Call to Action or CTA

UX button microscopy tells users what action will happen if they click the button. For effective calls-to-action, minimize word count: Use "Add to Cart" or "Submit" to make things easy for users.
