Password Solutions for Consumers

Just tap to sign in; now that’s Symple

If you’re like most people, you can relate to the frustration of forgetting a user name or password. When you do forget, it’s a significant pain to try and guess the right one, or worse still, go to the trouble of resetting and picking a new one.

Or perhaps you’re using the same password and username for everything. This certainly makes it easier to remember, but it also makes it practically guaranteed that you will  be hacked at some point. Whether it’s your online bank account, or one of your social accounts, being hacked is frustrating and can cost time and money.

Let’s face it, collectively we have a real “password problem.” Security experts keep telling us not to use the same password for every site, not to use simple names or words, and to change our passwords frequently; but how many people do you know that actually do this?

With the growth of online services and social media, the “password problem” isn’t getting any better, in fact, it’s getting worse.

Thankfully there’s Symple ID. With Symple ID your smartphone becomes your secure online ID; you simply tap with your smartphone in order to sign into your favorite sites.
