WISeKey International Holding has revealed new features of the latest version of its WISeID app, which are now available to TransHuman Code’s buyers.

As per the agreement, the new solution allows customers of the TransHuman Code book (THC book) to use the secure QR Code to get an encrypted digital identity and to control their personal information.

The TransHuman Code is a humanitarian approach to a technologically innovative future. On the other hand, WISeKey’s latest version of its WISeID app incorporates features that aim to protect consumers against cyberattacks on personal data. The solutions are adapted to this new US legislation on data protection and focus on consumers’ rights to know and control their personal information as well as transparency requirements related to companies’ data practices.

Moreover, WISeID Personal Vault, has been updated to include two main features:

  • WISeID Authenticator: a secure login feature, compatible with Google Authenticator, which works with online services like Gmail, Facebook, and others. The user can generate ‘one-time passwords’ directly from WISeID and use it to reinforce its regular password.

  • Free digital certificate: the new WISeID facilitates the steps to generate a digital certificate and integrate it with the device system applications like email, making it easy to secure email with encryption and digital signatures.
