There has been a huge focus on device security lately. There has always been such a focus, but it seems magnified in the wake of the NSA Prism leaks. For the most part, the various security software and apps seem to utilize complex encryption or other such methods. The point being, many of these security features are bulky and complex; the average user has no idea how to tweak or explore the options. Well, here at TC Disrupt NY, we just had the chance to speak with a security company that places an emphasis on simplicity of use: Phantom LogIn.
Phantom LogIn offers users a replacement password/login screen for their Android device. Rather than using a pin, text-based, or pattern password, Phantom LogIn users use pictures. What’s more, once users select a password, you never eve have to enter it again. The whole idea being that no one will ever have access to your raw password.
We created security software, which is impossible to be compromised by the available modern technologies. It is a phantom password system that no one can see and once applied, users never need to hide it again. It is not vulnerable to camera and keylogger, because users never enter their real code. The users Log In screen always looks different and they select different buttons each time they Log On, which only represent their actual password.1
We had a chance to speak with Simeon Kostov, Co-Founder and CTO of Phantom LogIn, a few hours ago. He told us some more about the app and gave us a demo:
