20 Modern Authentication Tools

From Secure Login Apps to Password-Avoiding Apps

— September 16, 2015 — Tech
An expansive list of modern authentication tools are updating the way users conduct themselves digitally. Whether assisting shopping needs, banking or social media platforms, numerous applications in this sector are attempting to make the modern consumer's life easier and more accessible.

Present within this sphere are secure login apps and password-avoiding apps. While these two ventures speak to the power of mobile, applications geared towards websites, wallets and cloud systems point to the many ways in which authentic ventures can be developed and launched.

As biometric features continue to dominate authentication, products and services highlighting technologies like eye scanning and facial recognition are proving to be particularly popular. Hyper-tailored facts in the context of recognition and verification also offer approachable solutions to the prevalence of hacking that has been seen in recent years.
