Davos, Switzerland (ots) - At the World Economic Forum Annual
Meeting in Davos, WISeKey, a World Economic Forum Global Growth
Company, launched its WISeID Personal Data Protector, a unique
application for the protection of personal data and personal
identifiable information (PII).
WISeID's main objective is to protect your PII, which can be used
to identify, contact or locate a person, or even trace them. The
personal data collected by WISeID always stays under the user's
control on their mobile phone. The PII is never communicated to third
parties and never leaves the user's control.
ID theft is the fastest growing crime, according to the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC). It occurs when intruders takes a piece of
your personal data and use it without your knowledge to commit fraud
or theft. WISeID protects your information from falling into the
wrong hands, and can also help users reduce the amount of spam or
other unwanted marketing that they receive.
WISeID previously hit the top 5 iPhone apps in its category in the
USA and is on its way to the top rank around the world. WISeID is
still free, but is now ad-supported.
The WISeID Personal Data Protector can be downloaded for iPhone,
iPod Touch and iPad from the App Store for free. It provides users
with a secure and easy to use encrypted place to store all their
personal data, personal identifiable information, usernames,
passwords, PINs, credit cards, loyalty cards, social security number,
notes and more. The easy-to-use interface also allows users to log on
to websites quickly and securely from the application, securing all
data with the AES encryption algorithm a strong 256-bit key.
