About this project
Let's take control of our own digital identity
Online service will become increasingly personalized. Although this provides a great opportunity, it also forces us to have more personalized user accounts and share more information. To support both users and service providers to utilize this great opportunity, innovation is needed for a solution that ensures optimal user convenience in combination with security and privacy.
MobyFace has the solution for these problems and more...
We all recognize the problem of having too many different passwords for all kind of services we seldom use. People tend to solve this inconvenience by using solutions like password managers. MobyFace, however, offers a long-term solution for this which solves the password fragmentation by its roots. Just simple scan a QR code at the login page, accept sharing your identity and as a result you are logged in automatically.
Filling in massive forms (online or offline) could be a real burden. Why do we have to enter our information each time again? We tend to solve it by browser tools like the auto fill-in tool.
Using MobyFace would mean that you can easily share your personal information by scanning a QR code, check the information being shared and accept the transaction. As a result, MobyFace offers robust and privacy-enabling solutions for sharing personal information.
You can even go one step further and allow parties to subscribe to your information. This means that an update on you address will automatically be shared with the parties you trust.
With the Live Relation Directory you are able to let your relations, like friends, family and colleagues, subscribe to your personal information. Your information is only updated to relations you trust and you can select which information they receive updates from.
You can let a relation stay up-to-date by selecting the information you want to share and generate a QR code on your display. Your relation has to scan this QR code with their MobyFace Mobile App™. Now this relation will get updates when you change the personal information that you selected.
The MobyFace Mobile App™ is equipped with a unique self-service recovery mechanism. When you lost your phone you don't have to send an email or call a call center. You just go to a person you trust to block your old device and initiate the recovery on a new device.
Main functionality is listed below which is included in the first release of the MobyFace Mobile App™. Much more functionality will be added shortly after the first release!
We are sure you can, because the nice thing about MobyFace is that is has a very generic and flexible basis for much more innovative applications. The possibilities are endless. What about logging into a shared screen, share your e-mail address with a trusted company by means of a QR code on a billboard, more efficient project management, etc.
The MobyFace Mobile App™ puts you in control of your own personal information. By using this app, identifying yourself, sharing information, and other interaction with online service providers will be more convenient and more secure than today. No more passwords, no more typing the same information over and over again, and even more...
Next to convenience and security, privacy is very important for us. We have designed the technology using the 'privacy by design' principle. Just as an example, your personal information is stored in your app and not within the facilitating infrastructure. You are in control of your information. No information will be shared without your explicit consent!
The MobyFace Technology™ is designed by security professionals with a bright eye for the user experience. Current developments and trends are taken into account when makng the technology future proof. We strongly believe that MobyFace offers a long-term solution for a wide range of inconvenience problems we experience today. The combination of security, convenience and privacy will become more and more key to the success of online services.

We already have validated our ideas with a lot of different specialists and fine tuned our ideas over the last year. Furthermore we build the first version of the technology in order test user acceptance and demonstrate it. Currently we are in an exposure generating phase. This exposure we need in order building community, attract launching customers and obtain enough funds to kickstart MobyFace. From July 1st we will start a new phase which is oriented on making the MobyFace Technology™ ready for mass rollout.
The technology we already have so far needs to be enhanced with more self-service functions in order to make sure anyone can play, integrate and use the technology autonomous. During this phase we will also build further on our exposure and attract the first customers for implementation. Nov 2014 we will make available the MobyFace Mobile App™ (Android and iOS) and the MobyFace Engine™ to you!
With your support we can make this technology available and unlock new features.
The MobyFace core team consists of two security professionals, Mark Baaijens and Richard Lous. Mark Baaijens is a online security consultant with a strong background in transaction security. For the last years he is advising big organisations on their transactional services. Richard Lous has a track record in app development, user experience and designing. He is currently working on his Master of Science degree in Barcelona, Spain. See LinkedIn for more information on their profiles.

Risks and challenges
We already have validated our ideas with a lot of different specialists and fine tuned our ideas over the last year. Like any other entrepreneurial project we are facing a number of challenges.
The two biggest challenges are (1) to creatively solve the chicken and egg problem we face in this two-sided market (users and businesses) and (2) increase the ‘daadkracht’ to develop the technology and follow up all the sales leads we already have.
This crowd-funding campaign is supposed to support on these challenges. Creating an active community will make us more attractive for parties to implement the MobyFace Technology™ and the funds will allow us to extend the team and improve the organisation.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
