Passtouch is introducing a signature type password alternative and Web browser for touch screen devices like the iPad. Passtouch works like a signature but offers more creative freedom to the end user.
Users create their own Passtouch design by drawing a single continuous line over an interface in the PassTouch app. The app is intuitive and takes advantage of the iPad’s touch screen. Free and paid versions of the app are available in the iTunes App store.
Since Passtouch can be a free form, natural and intuitively interactive, it produces a significant amount of authentication data, unlike traditional password security. Another feature is the graphical user interface. It is built on fundamental visual elements that serve as a vivid roadmap to guide users along their signature path.
The colorful design and circular framework of the interface encourage users to create entries that are very fluid, well balanced and ultimately more secure. After a handful of entries, a Passtouch begins to develop a certain feel and muscle memory kicks in. This combination of universally recognized visual cues in the interface along with muscle memory is designed to make Passtouch easy to remember.
The Passtouch Web browser enables multiple users to create private profiles, each with their own history and bookmarks. A single Passtouch signature protects profiles, no typing required. While browsing, Web site login details can be saved as bookmarks, which provide one-touch access to password protected sites.
