LogMeOnce, the distinctive market leader in passwordless authentication, unveiled today the LogMeOnce Account Freeze, a unique, patent-pending security application designed to help consumers and businesses protect their passwords and security credentials, and manage against cyberattacks. Account Freeze puts you in control of your digital accounts and security, and adds a new security layer. When you freeze your LogMeOnce account, no one other than you can access it and outsiders won’t be aware of the freeze. Any attempts at logging in by an intruder will be blocked—although on the surface everything will appear normal.
You can freeze access to your account for as long as you wish. If you ever get the sense that there’s suspicious activity in your digital life—while traveling, using public WiFi, or out and about—and wish to prevent anyone (hackers too) from gaining access to your LogMeOnce account, you can freeze access from any device. Simply select for how long!
“Getting hacked or compromised would be a horrible experience. To seal off your account, you can throw a security blanket and establish a simple but comprehensive security layer by invoking Account Freeze,” says Kevin Shahbazi, CEO of LogMeOnce. “With Account Freeze, you can get as granular as you wish. You can freeze your entire account until you unfreeze it, freeze it for a specific time and duration, freeze other IP addresses excluding yours or certain others, and freeze few or all kinds of devices except yours.”
Once you initiate an account freeze, no transactions or activity can occur. This patent-pending technology allows you to specify that only access from computers is prohibited while allowing access from a specific “trusted” mobile device (or vice versa) to unfreeze your account. Additionally, LogMeOnce records any traces of unwelcome attempts to your accounts—intruders won’t know to what extent you are collecting their metadata, creating a detailed chronology of every single attempt with date and time stamp, IP address, GPS, images, etc.
Interested parties are welcome to take advantage of the LogMeOnce partner program and OEM licensing. As a “zero-knowledge” technology company, LogMeOnce does not know a user’s encryption key or actual passwords. With LogmeOnce, you are the only one who has absolute knowledge of your actual password and encryption key—only you can decrypt your account.
Founded in 2010, the award-winning LogMeOnce confidently helps consumers and businesses protect their passwords, identity, and data.
