BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - June 06, 2013) - Diamond Fortress Technologies, Inc. (DFT), developers of innerID®, patented fingerprint biometric authentication software, today announces that it has launched an indiegogo campaign to fund the development of two apps allowing consumers to instantly and securely conduct all their online transactions without requiring passwords. The campaign will support the development and roll-out of WALit™, a mobile wallet app, and of WALlock™, a device unlock app, both based on DFT's innerID technology, which uses a smart phone's camera to capture and identify a user's unique fingerprint.
WALit enables instantaneous checkout for online purchases with fingerprint biometric security to protect a user's credit card and personal information. WALlock uses innerID in a Device Unlock App to prevent unauthorized access to the user's mobile device. WALlock, will end the need for a 4-digit PIN or a pattern to remember to unlock your device; a quick finger scan by an authorized user is all that's required to securely access the device.
"If you've ever had to maintain multiple passwords for multiple secure sites or fumble for the right password to complete a transaction, you'll begin to appreciate the game-changing convenience of our innerID technology," said Chace Hatcher, CEO of Diamond Fortress Technologies. "The apps we're looking to fund through indiegogo allow any consumer with a smart phone to securely access all their online accounts -- with just a swipe of their finger. Over and above the convenience, account(s) can no longer be compromised by a single 'discovered' password. Going the indiegogo route has the added benefit of acquainting consumers, investors, potential technology partners and e-commerce vendors with a whole new way of conducting online transactions -- whether it's an online purchase or securely accessing personal (and company) data."
indiegogo is the industry-leading platform used to raise millions of dollars by people all over the world. The DFT indiegogo campaign can be viewed at: http://tinyurl.com/l75zkvq
