Tired of having to repeat yourself, answer silly security questions, and re-verify your identity every time a call center transfers your number? Done with having to keep track of a different password for every site you use?
With Connect.Me, thats all a thing of the past. Our app allows your favorite brands to verify your identity once and use that same trusted, secure verification to immediately recognize your customer status every time you log-in to their site, walk-in to their store, or call-in to their support line.
The result? More trusted consumer relationships and less time spent trying to remember passwords and answers to security questions like the name of your first crush.
With Connect.Me, you can:
Create a private, unique cryptographic connection between your phone and your Credit Union (or other businesses) to communicate
Send and receive information over a secure connection
Instantly prove your identity and customer loyalty status in a more secure manner than passwords and security questions
Gather, store, and share credentials (like a digital drivers license)
Connect.Me is a digital wallet for storing the first digital identity credentials solely owned and controlled by the user. The connections you form are yours. Your data lives with you. Organizations can connect with you and communicate with you privately and securely.
Think of it as the evolution of the wallet in your backpocket. Just as you can pull out your wallet and flash your drivers license to verify your identity in the physical world, you can now open your Connect.Me wallet and tap a button to verify your identity in the digital world.
Why use Connect.Me?
1. It actively protects your privacy. Connect.Me creates brand new unique channels for communication, called Connections, each time you connect to a new organization or business. This means no identifying information is ever used twice. Its kind of like inventing a new language only the two parties know and understand, and its alldone automatically, behind the scenes, every time you make a connectionto maximize your privacy and not leave a digital wake that can be used to track or correlate your identity.
2. The app publisher (Evernym, Inc) doesnt (and never will) own any of your information. Zip, zero, zilch. Connect.Me is a digital wallet, which means everything in it belongs only to you and lives on your physical phone. If you lose your phone or uninstall the app, you can recover through our backup and recovery options.
3. Connect.Me contents are protected by state-of-the-art encryption. Sometimes when a company says end-to-end encryption, they conveniently leave out the part where the company providing it can also decrypt and view the information. Not so with Connect.Me. Every connection you make is truly peer-to-peer with no middle man (or company). We use Ed25519 elliptic curve cryptography. It is a newer type of crypto that offers faster and stronger signing and verification.
