Toopher, Keeping It in Your Pants by Preventing Online Fraud and Identity Theft Just by Using Your Smartphone, Launches at DEMO Spring 2012(April 17, 2012)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- Austin-based Toopher announces the launch of a smartphone app that prevents online fraud and identity theft. Toopher uses the location awareness of mobile phones as a second factor of authentication, so users get better security without any hassle; they can simply leave their phones in their pockets.
At the DEMO Spring 2012 conference this week, Toopher will demonstrate the power and simplicity of its security solution.
"We're not just the new security standard, our feature set beats anything else out there," states Josh Alexander, Toopher's Co-Founder and CEO. "We don't just authenticate your login; we authenticate everything you do. We also verify it's you every time you make a purchase, transfer money, buy a stock, etc. We can log you out when you walk away from your computer, and we can lock down your accounts while you sleep. And with our IP, this is just the tip of the iceberg of what Toopher can do."
"What could be a better, more adoptable solution than simply leaving your phone in your pocket to increase your security?" questions Evan Grim, Toopher's Founder & CTO. "We built Toopher because consumers and businesses told us they wanted this combination of protection and convenience on everything they use. And we agree -- I want to use Toopher to secure my Bank of America, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, PayPal, and Google accounts."
"Toopher is more than just a security solution, it's the security solution users would actually want to use; hell, it's what I want to use," adds Matt Marshall, Executive Producer, DEMO.
"We've scoured the market for a product that offered both top-tier security and incredible convenience, and it didn't exist before Toopher," added Brian Cahak, CEO of Aptus Holdings.
Toopher works by adding a second factor of authentication, using phones' location awareness. This dramatically improves online security, as most consumers and businesses rely on passwords to verify identities. Toopher, which is already making inroads at major institutions, is completely free for users and small enterprises.
Toopher is an Austin-based company building solutions to improve online security for both consumers and enterprises. Toopher saves consumers and businesses billions of dollars by preventing online fraud and identity theft from ever happening using the location awareness of smartphones.
