BIO-key introduces biometrics-secured password manager
BIO-key has introduced a fingerprint-secured password manager named OmniPass Consumer which is available free of charge to users of company’s line of compact fingerprint readers.
Using one of BIO-key’s compact fingerprint readers on a Microsoft Windows device, OmniPass Consumer offers secure biometric sign-in to any website or app while providing a secure online vault in which to store unique and complex passwords.
“With the launch of OmniPass Consumer, BIO-key is delivering a new level of security and convenience to consumers who recognized their methods posed risks, but had no secure or convenient alternative,” commented Scott Mahnken, VP marketing at BIO-key. “With this convenient new solution, you will no longer have an excuse (nor the need) to use or reuse the same simple password across many sites or applications, because OmniPass will automatically enter and keep track of complex passwords.”
Just last week, BIO-key released updates of its WEB-key biometric service platform and fingerprint algorithm software.
