FaceCrypt is a password app that is like a vault for personal information that can be unlocked with just a selfie. The app is capable of storing important personal data like credit card information, personal documents, passwords and banking information — just don’t change up your look too often or you may have trouble getting at the info stored on the app.
In addition to being able to access the data stored in FaceCrypt with a snapshot of your face, there are other ways to get at your data like blinking or inputting specific patterns. But its biometric facial recognition technology is probably the most interesting way to get into the FaceCrypt app.
Currently, there are two versions of the FaceCrypt app: a basic $5 version and a $7 version.
