Tips & Tricks to Using WISeID

Secure Passwords

If you choose a password because you want it to be easy to remember password, like your dog’s name, there is a really good chance that someone who knows relatively little about you could find out what it is. Any word you can find in a dictionary is also a danger. However, the benefit of WISeID is that you can store all your highly-secure, very-hard-to-remember passwords in the app, and then you need only commit one highly secure password to memory. That is the KEYCODE for access to WISeID.

Digital IDs

WISeKey's Certify ID Personal ID (or eID) is a digital ID or certificate that allows an individual to identify, authenticate, and securely encrypt communications with non-refutable digital signatures. The idea of a digital ID is to associate the identity of a person with a digital identity, like a passport to be used on the Internet. A digital ID enables you to:

  • Create digital signatures on email, ensuring message integrity and authenticity
  • Send and receive confidential information that only you can decrypt and read
  • Increase security by replacing passwords with eID authentication for PKI enabled applications

Why do I need to register?
You need to create an account to user app and backup your data to WISeKey Cloud.

Trust Level

In the physical world, if you apply for a license to drive, national ID card, or other sort of official identification, you go personally to register and there are means to verify that you are who you say your are. In the digital world, we want to have digital IDs that can offer the same level of guarantee to the authenticity of the individual ID holder. So, WISeID has established the concept of Trust Level to indicate to others the confidence of your identity. You can choose how much information you would like to share, and based on this information, we can better verify that you are who you say you are.

I forgot my WISeID KEYCODE; can WISeKey help me retrieve it?
It may be surprising to discover that WISeKey cannot help retrieve any information, including your KEYCODE, should it be lost. This is simply because, in order to truly secure your information, it is only stored encrypted on your mobile device (or on the cloud if you enable that feature). None of the WISeID data you enter, including your KEYCODE, is ever sent to WISeKey. For the most secure system, your KEYCODE is the only key that can unlock the encrypted data on your phone. For that reason, your data cannot be retrieved without it.

How do I logon to websites with one click?
The WISeID Categories for Password, Frequent Flier each record the website address (URL), account username, and password. After you Save a new entry, you can access the website logon screen directly through the WISeID web browser without entering any additional information.
