How CryptoPhoto works

The photos block phishing and other impostors from tricking users into divulging secret information into unauthorised hands. The passcodes prevent keyloggers from using stolen information.

Our API (Application Programming Interface) makes it easy for any security conscious web site operator to incorporate our multifactor bidirectional authentication into their existing login/authentication systems.
