We here at Blcomp.com are now proud to say we are using Secure QR Logins (SQRL) to securely log into our websites. The technology by our standards is finally secure for us to trust and promote for our customers and friends.
It is so simple and secure we wonder why this wasn’t done earlier?!? To explain the technology would go into pages and pages of web text, but since it already exists we do not have to recreate it (a true blessing).
We are using the services at Zapper (http://www.zapper.com/how_it_works.php). The have apps for all phones which is great. It allows anybody to use it. Once you plug it into your web site then all your users can use it. We herd of this technology at this site GRC (https://www.grc.com/sqrl/sqrl.htm) who also explains it with very great details. Note that it’s all the same tech… It is pronounced “squirrel” and it’s amazingly great and secure (very important!).
Besides secure logins this tech can also be used for other areas: credit cards, shipping addresses and other details one would use when buying, shipping or whatever needed to be securely entered.
This tech is also used to defeat key strokers / key loggers and virus infected computers. Since people carry their phone more times then their watch this tech makes a great idea. If for example you are at your own secure (virus free) computer / tablet then this tech is a good convience. On the other hand you have to log into a web site on a foreign computer / network (one you don’t trust or can’t verify and control) this tech is a god send. No worries of password / credit cards / personal address info leakage to someone else not know of for their own use (usually criminal)…
Like I said we here at Blcomp.com are now using it and very thankful for it!!!
