About us

Passwords and PIN codes are the weakest part of any authentication system, leading to huge company losses and regulatory fines. As companies strive to make passwords more secure by adding complexity, they sacrifice usability. This leads to poor password management, and misuse such as unauthorised sharing by employees, and is one of the biggest challenges facing the biggest companies on the planet. Everyone in the IT industry is seeking a solution.

SensiPass creates a 3-FACTOR dynamic digital signature in only THREE SECONDS by capturing a real-time biometric image, and adding a simple-secret-trace over it, all on your smartphone. Simply smile, swipe, and you have proven your identity with the highest level of trust. We provide strong multifactor authentication without passwords, PIN codes or extra hardware, improving the security of biometrics by up to 3X. We simply make biometrics smarter.

We serve companies in markets driven by regulatory drivers to improve security and compliance such as financial institutions, healthcare, and critical infrastructure. These organizations are accustomed to sacrificing convenience for security. While we are unique in the ability to offer all 3-factors of security, our approach inherently improves convenience and usability as well, which is further enhances our value proposition. Our aim is to improve digital security for companies and their end users by authenticating people, not just their credentials.
