Twogere is a direct Communication Portal built from the ground up with security, anonymity and privacy as major concerns. We therefore use 2-factor/step authentication for every service a user needs to access.
This helps prevent against cyber threats such as session hijacking and Man-in-the-Middle Attacks since it requires users to verify their identity using better alternatives than simply using a password to access our services.
Users can remain anonymous to eachother however Twogere requires that you to authenticate to the platform before entering meeting rooms in order to minimize abuse of service and eliminate impersonation attacks.
Since this platform is built on trust, we need to verify your identity in order to convey trust to the people you interact with, without them necessarily knowing who you are.
Twogere provides a bridge to link clients directly to service providers without disclosing either party’s personal or contact information as they interact in meeting rooms.
More Information on Two Factor Authentication
Two Factor authentication has been around for some time now, it is a practical way to add further security to the user authentication sequence
There are currently three main ways a user can be authenticated:
1. Something the user knows (PIN, Password, Secret)
2. Something the user owns (Mobile Phone, Device)
3. Something the user is (Biometric, retina, fingerprint)
Two Factor authentication can be a combination of any two of the above three ways. Twogere currently applies technologies made from points 1 and 2.
The verification sequence requires a unique auto-generated password and a passcode sent by us via Mobile to be entered by the user. Providing separate factors of user authentication results in real-time protection to our clients.
Leveraging something the user already has, allows a seamless and cost effective solution for Two Factor authentication to be implemented.
