Howard Yates - Canary Wharf The UK Government has backed Tento’s one-only password tech. Watch the video on our News tab along with more coverage. Thanks to Minister Ed Vaizey for his quote: “I congratulate Tento on winning the challenge and their trial will hopefully provide new ways for businesses and their customers to carry out secure and efficient online transactions” Howard Yates, founder Tento, says “We were delighted to win the cybersecurity challenge set by IC Tomorrow (part of Innovate UK). This gives us some funding and, more importantly, the chance to work with Royal Bank of Scotland, culminating in a 3-month trial of our technology”


 Picture1 A brief explanation of our patented password technology

A user opens the Tento app, with their one-only remembered password, and is shown a QR code. This is similar to those you see in shops.

Using their smartphone they scan the QR code and a login is revealed. When entered,this triggers Tento’s secure access to the internet and online payments etc….

Each time the QR code is scanned it reveals a different login (unknown to us, the smartphone – indeed anyone or thing)

The smartphone does not need to be connected to a network; this makes the login extremely safe to use.

TentoID authentication can now be demonstrated on Android mobiles and tablets.  Click here for a demo (iPhone app is being developed)

We are now seeking partners and/or investors to help us turn the prototype into a working product. Now, see “How it works”
