ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trust Stamp (Nasdaq: IDAI), the Privacy-First Identity CompanyTM providing AI-powered trust and identity services used globally across multiple sectors has announced the launch of its Tap-In Band™, a wrist-worn, tamper resistant, hypoallergenic NFC band that facilitates discrete check-in by, and communication with, participants in community based supervision programs.
The Tap-In Band leverages the GPS and NFC technologies in the user’s own mobile phone and allows the user to verify their well-being and location by tapping the band to the phone, gaining direct access to a personalized web portal with messaging and two-way audio visual communications. The use of the Tap-In Band augments facial biometric authentication using the phone’s camera and Trust Stamp holds provisional patent #63/581,409 from the US Patent and Trademark Office covering multi-factor authentication using a tamper proof band and biometric authentication.
Unlike existing ankle and wrist worn technologies, The Tap-In Band has no battery, removing perennial concerns about battery failure and the inconvenience of charging, and does not itself contain GPS tracking technology thereby reducing user apprehension regarding intrusive monitoring. Removal of the Band results in the Band permanently notifying tampering even if competently repaired.
The Tap-In Band and associated biometric processes utilize Trust Stamp’s patented IT2 identity tokenization processes that allow users to biometrically authenticate without the need to store biometric images or templates.
Gareth N. Genner, Trust Stamp’s Chief Executive Officer said, “The Tap-In Band is the result of three years of market discovery and development and is a game-changer. The band is battery-free and has a fitness band-styled design that provides secure authentication without imposing embarrassment or discomfort. We are not publicly releasing images of the customizable aesthetic design but I will say that the Band is available in a variety of colors with optional design features that ensure that the underlying use-case is not obvious to an onlooker.
The use of our IT2 identity tokenization, combined with data flows that do not require any data to be received or processed by Trust Stamp or any other vendor, ensure that the legitimate privacy and safety concerns that are raised by legacy technologies are removed with the Tap-In Band. While the Tap-In Band can be used for continual monitoring programs, we believe that the highest and best use is to support programs that require scheduled or randomly triggered check-ins.”
Genner went on to say, “Alternative to Detention programs are not only more humane than incarceration but also cost society a fraction of the cost while having a high success rate. That said, although over $440 million is spent on such programs in the United States each year, their expansion is limited, at least in part, by budgetary constraints. The Tap-In Band, combined with the user’s own mobile device offers all of the utility of devices that are up to 100x the capital and operational costs and the technology can be quickly integrated into a wide range of community monitoring programs with minimal capital investment.”
