'JAR' is a personal biometric device that helps keep your information safe and secure. With so many services now conducted online, consumers have an unprecedented number of passwords to remember. This device eliminates the need for passwords simply by using an individual's fingertip as a form of identification.

JAR is essentially a crypto-key, which uses an individual's fingerprint as their login information. The personal biometric device operates through the use of a touch sensitive button, which can be plugged into a user's smartphone or laptop via the audio jack. The device is said to be 100 percent secure and completely hack-proof. Even if the device is lost, JAR can be replaced without compromising a user's personal information.

JAR is currently running a crowdfunding campaign to try and bring the product to consumers.
