Security company Facebanx has developed new software changing the way customers log in.
The new software uses a facial image and voice recognition instead of a standard password on PC, tablet and smartphone and boasts 99.8% accuracy according to Facebanx.
The software will eventually eliminate the need for a password saving millions in call center staff used to reset passwords plus reduce the risk of identity theft.
Matthew Silverstone, chief executive officer of Facebanx said: “By simply pointing a device’s camera and taking a selfie and then repeating out loud four randomly generated numbers, customers will be able to log into their account within seconds. This technology is incredibly accurate as it combines two different biometrics into one seamless experience.”
“Our product is proving incredibly popular to organisations in the banking, gaming, healthcare and retail sectors as it provides for the first time a level playing field against cybercrime. Now criminals will not be able to use malware to simply hack into customer accounts as they won’t be able to reproduce a live streamed image speaking out loud randomly generated numbers. This is the first time that the customer has been handed power back to them to stop account takeovers from taking place.”
