Forget About Passwords and Usernames – UnifyID
Congratulations to our friends at UniFyID for raising $20 million Series A investment led by NEA! We first met them at TC Disrupt 2016 in San Francisco, where gloriously earned the Battlefield Runner-up award, and today we find them taking the startup scene by the storm raising 20M in Series A funds.
UnifyID is an identity platform that offers seamless security through implicit authentication.Their solution allows people to identify themselves in a unique way that is extremely difficult to forge or crack, while UnifyID respects user privacy. Specifically, there are factors that are unique to you but don’t require any user action, such as your location, your habits, and various signals from the devices you carry and the sensors around you. UnfyID uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to discover what makes you unique and calculate a confidence level of how likely it is you based on these signals.
