Forghetti announces an exclusive cyber security agreement with CSL Mobile Limited, Hong Kong’s leading mobile communications service provider, to equip csl and 1O1O customers with the innovative Forghetti password management solution.
This unique application will be made available free of charge to all csl and 1O1O customers subscribing to 5G service plans.
People today routinely rely on more than 50 online services, each of which requires a username and password. And research shows using the same passwords for multiple services makes life much easier for hackers and often leads to the innocent losing money and/or personal data.
Using unique passwords reduces the likelihood of a successful attack by more than 50%. Forghetti does not follow the traditional method of storing passwords in a vault. Instead, it computes a strong password via a combination of more than 10 unique elements including a user’s own personal doodle drawing. This relieves the user from having to memorise seemingly endless sequences of letters, numbers and special characters, while maintaining a high standard of security. Using and sharing passwords with friends and colleagues is now much safer and easier. The Forghetti application is compatible with all smartphone platforms, as well as PC, Mac and browsers, so users can retrieve their passwords online anytime, anywhere.
The agreement between Forghetti and CSL Mobile ensures all csl/1O1O’s 5G subscribers are safeguarded by the best possible password management practice. Each and every Forghetti password is generated by a drawn doodle. It’s unique, complex and, most importantly, NOT stored.
Bruce Lam, Managing Director of CSL Consumer Mobile, said: “We are proud to be offering our customers one of the most innovative password cyber security solutions available in the market, at a time when technological solutions are abound and security is at the forefront of our minds.”
Michael Crompton, Founder & CEO of Forghetti, said: “It is with great pleasure and pride that we have chosen csl as our exclusive MNO partner in Hong Kong. Forghetti’s simple approach to password management enables csl’s subscribers to adopt best practice password management on all their devices with the utmost ease. This represents a significant milestone for Forghetti in Asia, and I look forward to a successful partnership with CSL Mobile in the region and beyond.”
Adoption of robust password management by every individual will play a decisive role in keeping IT systems safe and secure – and could be thought of in the same context as the lifesaving benefits of wearing a car seatbelt. In this regard, Forghetti and csl are championing safety and security among mobile users in Hong Kong.
This is the first of what Forghetti intends to be a global roll-out of services, supporting businesses and their customers innovative, user friendly and effective cyber security solutions.
Forghetti has developed an innovative and simple to use password generator and manager designed for everyone. All customers ever need remember is one simple doodle to generate all their unique passwords. Memorable, safe and stress-free, each customer is able to generate unique and secure passwords time and time again.
Unlike other password management solutions, forghetti does not store passwords in a central database. Passwords are re-calculated each time the customer requests them. The password generated is calculated from multiple unique pieces of information, from various separate locations – the device, Google’s Cloud databases and the user themselves (the doodle).
