WISeID is a personal security application for smartphones that gives users control over their personal information. “Only the user determines which identification attributes are shared with social media, credit cards, merchant sites etc,” the company claims.

The application, from Geneva-based security giant WISeKey, also acts as an encrypted messenger app, password vault, a secure password generator, and a multi-device data synchronizer on a secure cloud network. To strengthen security, the app requires users to pass a facial recognition check before accessing any sensitive areas.

The newest iteration of of the WISeID app, version 6, includes a public blockchain. App users act as peers, and each downloads a copy of the blockchain. Acting as a “dual factor authentication technology that sits on top of a BlockChain,” there is no cryptocurrency or token residing on this ledger, just user data.
