GENEVA, January 27, 2011 - WISeID Personal Data Protector by WISeKey is a unique
application that protects an individual's personal data and personal
identifiable information (PII) from hackers, and allows them to maintain
control over who accesses their data.
This week alone, Zuckerberg hasn't been the only famous figure
to have his Facebook page hacked. A hacker, posing as French President
Nicolas Sarkozy, posted a message on the President's wall on Sunday stating
that he would not run for re-election. Both victims may have been subject to
SideJacking or phishing attacks.
WISeID's main objective is to protect your PII, which can be
used to identify, contact, locate or even trace a person. The personal data
collected by WISeID always stays under the user's control on their mobile
phone or device. The PII is never communicated to third parties and never
leaves the user's control. Users can generate strong passwords, store them
securely, and logon directly to the real web-site; thus using WISeID may have
prevented the Facebook founder's page from being hacked.
WISeID is currently #1 in Utilities and in the top 50 overall
free apps in the US, and it can be downloaded worldwide for iPhone, iPod
Touch and iPad from the App Store. It provides users with a secure and easy
to use encrypted place to store all their personal data, personal
identifiable information, usernames, passwords, PINs, credit cards, loyalty
cards, social security number, notes and more. The easy-to-use interface also
allows users to log on to websites quickly and securely from the application,
securing all data with a strong 256-bit AES encryption algorithm key.
