iProov, the world’s leading provider of biometric authentication technology, today announced the launch of iProov Web, bringing genuine presence assurance to the web browser.
Since 2018, over 3 million people have used iProov’s patented Flashmark technology in mobile apps to confirm their genuine presence. Users wanting to access a bank account or register for secure services simply hold their phone or other mobile device in front of their faces, and a unique colored illumination completes the genuine presence assurance by confirming that it is the right person and a real person, authenticating themselves right now.
The world’s most security-conscious organizations, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the UK Home Office, Standard Bank in South Africa, and ING in the Netherlands, are using iProov technology in large-scale applications.
iProov Web now extends effortless genuine presence assurance to web browsers, allowing users to securely “iProov” themselves on their laptop and desktop computers, tablets, kiosks, and other devices.
