The tech-savvy aren’t shocked about online crime - until it happens to them ...
If you run your own business, or you’re a student, or you work on computers daily, you probably consider yourself fairly tech-savvy. But hopefully, you’re not naive enough to think you can’t be fooled by those clever scammers, or think you’re safe from password hackers - because evidence shows that these crimes are indiscriminate - anyone can be fooled and anyone can be hacked.
80% of security breaches involve compromised passwords (DBIR, Verizon 2019). Now is the time to do something about it before it’s too late. The most significant problem is fixed passwords: your secret is revealed as soon as you use it - that’s why you can’t use your credit card pin online.
The marketplace has offered a solution - 2-factor authentication, where you receive a one-time code via SMS on your phone, or you get a one-time code from an app on your phone. But this only works if you have a smartphone, you have it with you, and the signal strength is OK.
This solution fails if your phone is lost or stolen, or even worse, your phone gets hacked or copied.
Shayype offers an alternative:
- Your secret is a memorable pattern
- so it’s much easier to remember than a string of characters;
- You never reveal your secret, you read off a one-time code only you can see
so it can be used with no risk of compromising your identity;
- You don’t need a device
so you are not frustrated by technology.
