ID R&D launches frictionless multi-factor biometric authentication for messaging apps


AI behavioral, voice, and anti-spoofing technology provider ID R&D has launched a biometric authentication technology specifically for messaging, which is an industry first according to the announcement.

The new SafeMessage software provides continuous, multi-layer authentication across messaging platforms including Signal, WhatsApp, Telegram, Skype, and Slack, without impacting user experience, ID R&D says. It is intended as an additional security layer for both enterprise and public users, with messages sent from shared or lost devices a user has not logged out of flagged as fraudulent in real time.

SafeMessage combines voice and behavioral biometrics with facial recognition, and voice and face “liveness” analysis. Biometric data is captured during the normal interaction between the sender of a message and the device it is sent from, in one to two seconds, and SafeMessage users receive a positive ID icon with each identity-verified incoming message. The technology’s anti-spoofing capabilities can also differentiate between real users and voice recordings or computer-generated speech simulation.

“ID R&D is thrilled to be the first to introduce frictionless authentication to messaging apps and platforms. Now secure and seamless communication is a possibility for all end users, whether over text, mobile app, instant message, chat, or the internet,” said Alexey Khitrov, CEO of ID R&D. “For enterprises seeking to protect sensitive data while delivering an enhanced communications UX, ID R&D’s solutions deliver incomparable results.”

The company’s eventful year includes selection as a Top Pick in Fintech for TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF in July.

ID R&D is demonstrating SafeMessage this week at FinnovateFall in New York.
