FaceGuard automatically makes a daily backup copy of the encrypted database containing all your usernames, passwords, favorite web site addresses, and familiar faces. By default, we place it in a special location on your device – whether a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop PC. There’s a convenient FaceGuard “Restore” option that presents the most recent ten (10) backups in chronological order.
You can easily have additional “backups” of your data simply by using SYNC. All your registered devices will then be identical. For example: let’s say you have an Android phone as well as an iPhone, plus an Android tablet, a Kindle, a laptop, and a PC. By REGISTERING each with the others, they can automatically synchronize with every change. If you add, edit or delete information – like updating a password – all will have the same data. That’s like owning a half a dozen backups all safely under your control. When you get a new whatever, so long as you can authenticate your identity, FaceGuard can be setup in less than a minute.
We encrypt data when exchanged from one device to another. That way your info stays secure even using the Internet for transmission. Critically though, data is never stored “in the cloud”. Our decision is based on common sense and a variation on the sage advice not to put all your eggs in one basket. As several companies who did opt for cloud storage of passwords discovered to their dismay and embarrassment, when you build a target, the whole world will take a crack at it. And why not? The motherlode of millions of identities is one hack away. Anyone assuring you the cloud is uncrackable is either naive or misrepresenting reality.
Even if you lose your device or someone steals it, hacking past FaceGuard’s FaceChallenge can be set at odds against the interloper of over 8 Billion to 1.
