Today we’re going to talk to you about one of our recent start-up entries and what wonders it does to the whole authentication process: UNLOQ.
UNLOQ is a robust authentication system created by developers for developers, designed to fit across a variety of devices. This app comes disguised as a widget, which can be embedded on a website and also has a companion mobile app that users will need in order to authenticate. The default authentication mechanism is a multi-factor system that uses out of band communication to authenticate a user.
Their initial release offers some cool features:
- the default multi-factor authentication system with out of band communication. A user needs a verified phone, a PIN for the app and a finger print, in case the phone is set to unlock using biometric features.
- alternative authentication methods: TOTP and e-mail
- request TOTP on each login
- estrict usage by setting up origin paths and timers
Find out more about their intentions and features and let’s spread the word about it, shall we?Tweet
