Our dependency on smartphones are growing day by day. Some of you may even be using your smartphones to access your bank accounts, PayPal, etc. Most of the apps that we download these days require us to create a username and password. Some of you may create strong passwords with a combination of caps and small caps letters, numbers, symbols, etc. Because remembering all these passwords can be daunting, you either use the same password for your bank account and some random dating app created by some random person (who know he is accessing your personal data!), or we use a simpler password that you can easily remember.
WiseID helps you simplify all of these problems. You are no more forced to use the same password for every accounts that you have or use a simpler password that you can remember. You can now create strong individual password for your emails, bank accounts, Facebook and every other apps and services without worrying about forgetting any of those passwords. Store them in WiseID – it helps you manage all of those passwords and personal data, completely encrypted, with 3 levels of protection – password, pattern and a face recognition – to access the app itself.
