(PresseBox) (Nürnberg, )

BioID GmbH

Pic4Pass is a business division of BioID, a leading European biometrics company, specialized in multimodal biometric authentication and IT security.
BioID is guided by the vision that multimodal biometrics will greatly enhance the convenience, user experience and security of Internet and mobile users and help them to protect their digital identities from identity theft. With the increasing use of the internet as well as mobile IT and communication services, people have a growing number of internet accounts and digital identities, which are typically protected only by a password or the combination of a token (card, key, USB stick, etc.) and a password. In contrast, BioID does not protect digital identities with insecure passwords and tokens, but rather with an indisputable link to the biometric traits of the user. Because biometric traits can’t be forged, lost, shared, or stolen. Biometric authentication is the only method known today that can verify the physical presence of a user.
BioID’s authentication software recognizes a person reliably by their face, iris and voice, and thus prevents fraudulent use of digital identities. At the same time, BioID enjoys high user acceptance because BioID users no longer have to remember passwords. The technology behind Pic4Pass has been in use for many years in banking, enterprise, and government IT security applications.
Privately held, BioID’s development facilities are located in Nuremberg, Germany. For more information, please visit
