humanID has developed a one-click, anonymous authentication solution that provides a safer online experience through the guarantee of user privacy and the prevention of bot, duplicate, and spam accounts.
Using phone-based authentication, humanID assigns each human user a hash Ied identifier, affording individuals unique online identities and the highest level of privacy protection.
humanID immediately deletes a user’s data upon authentication and never shares such information with the accessed website. Verification through phone number protects websites from unwanted, inhuman accounts and provides users with the added advantage of entirely eliminating the need for passwords.
With humanID’s technology, users enjoy a convenient and secure login experience while websites secure a useful ally against harmful bot accounts.
How Does Single Sign-On Work?
The foundation for SSO success is built upon trust between multiple parties. The service provider, or the application, and the identity provider, like humanID, must be perfectly transparent with one another in order to provide users seamless and secure access to multiple web resources. This trust is typically verified through the exchange of a certificate between both parties which can be used to identify information sent from the identity provider and service provider. In SSO, these bits of information, known as SSO tokens, are typically user credentials like email or username.
Our Authentication Solutions
humanID has developed one-click, anonymous authentication solutions that provide a safer online experience through the guarantee of user privacy and the prevention of bot, duplicate, and spam accounts. humanID currently offers apps and websites an easy-to-use single sign-on tool, as well as a CAPTCHA user authentication, both easily integrated through SDKs available on Github.

Louis van Ahn, inventor of CAPTCHA, once explained that a day would come where CAPTCHA would be unable to tell humans and bots apart any better than simply guessing. The unfortunate truth for the billions connected to the internet today is that the future Louis saw is here. With sophisticated botnets and powerful image recognition software, the system of puzzles once used to keep the internet safe from bots is now little more than a data-harvesting roadblock for human users. Bots actually have an easier time defeating CAPTCHA than humans do, leading many to ask why we would even use this outdated system at all?
Enter humanID CAPTCHA, our new solution to the bot problem that uses open-source tech to finally do away with puzzles! With humanID, users are assigned a unique, non-reversible identifier confirmed through SMS, ensuring complete anonymity. Using humanID, users can be sure they won’t have to go through puzzles, while platforms that integrate with us can sleep soundly, knowing that they have a bot-free network!
