Why we built GoodID
Because password vulnerability is one of the biggest issues of the digital era.
About Us - The GoodID Story
We come from a background of developing high security systems on chip solutions. After many years of working on such projects with very high security requirements, we noticed one of the biggest vulnerabilities of these systems is actually getting people to use them properly. Chip cards, though highly secure, can be really inconvenient, as it’s yet another thing we have to carry around with us.
But then we had an idea - what if we take the same concept, but use it for something that everyone always has with them at all times? Thus, GoodID was born, using the same security concepts as smartcards but using your mobile phone instead of another token.
We’ve spent the last 2 years building GoodID in our top secret security lab. We wanted to find a balance between high security and convenience and create something that everyone could use everyday.
We are proud to say we are the first to the market with our concept of using the most secure elements of phones to act as security tokens for online browsing (there are a lot of lookalikes, but no one else is using as secure technologies as we are).
But in order for us to make the whole GoodID revolution a reality, we need your help. We need to encourage all websites that manage users to support GoodID as a registration and authentication solution (similar to Google+ or Facebook Connect).
