As we get more social and mobile with our smaller and increasingly powerful devices, personal information becomes top priority.
Top priority for thieves and scoundrels — which means security should really become our top priority.
There are number of solutions out there, ranging from pay-for services, software/apps, or additional devices. Recently, much attention has been focused on products which feature some form of biometric security, like a fingerprint.
One of the latest devices to hit the market is Nymi, a bracelet that provides a unique form of security for devices. That signature is your heartbeat.
We’ve all seen heartbeats on an electrocardiogram (ECG), be it on TV or at a hospital. Human heartbeats follow a typical pattern, but each heartbeat has minute fluctuations which makes it unique to each person.
Nymi turns you into your personal security.
Nymi has an accompanying app, which is installed on a smartphone or device. The Nymi bracelet recognizes your cardic rhythm. The app lets your devices recognize you based on your activated bracelet.
No passwords. No keys. So long as the bracelet is worn and activated, you have full access to all of your devices.
No one can steal your bracelet and device and be able to access your information, since your heartbeat is unique to you.
Nymi is taking pre-orders right now. They’re also eager to see what exciting apps that developers make for or integrate with Nymi.
