1U App - Biometric Technology to protect your cyber life

Pros: Proven tighter security than passwords, keeps hackers further away from you, no more need to remember complicated numbers and symbol passwords.  If you lose your phone, no one can try to access your accounts with photos or videos of you.  And the biometric technology is so specific that even doppelgangers can’t access your accounts.  Cons: Just getting started, more sites need to adopt the 1U credential process in order for it to take off big. 1U App, free! 1uapps.com
