Users can also combine wearable verification with other methods, such as face or voice verification and location check. Mashable reports that the wristband will be available in a couple of weeks and the company hopes to sell it for under $20. PassBan’s co-founder and CEO Kayvan Alikhani said:
PassBan has taken a fresh approach to mobile identity, and wearable verification is the logical next step to providing a higher form of security by eliminating the need to carry around key fobs, use predictable & hackable passwords or using unsecure SMS tokens. Wearing your identity device as a wristband introduces a seamless path to identifying you on your smartphones and tablets. Today, more advanced user authentication methods are needed without compromising ease of use, and wearable devices are the natural next factor of choice.
