Mobilegov wants you to forget your passwords

Forgot your Facebook password recently ? How about Linkedin ? Twitter ? Having tons of overly complicated passwords to protect every last online account isn’t easy. Which is where Mobilegov comes in. The company based in Sophia-Anitpolis offers a solution that could really be appealing to companies and internet users -especially those who struggle every time they have to re-enter yet another login and password.

The company’s fingerprinting technology uses 2 criteria to identify users: habitual login information for each individual site as well as the device that they’re on. The first time users access the company’s newly rebranded portal,, they register their hardware and their login information for sites like Linkedin, Twitter, Yelp, Skype, etc. They can then access the various sites directly from the portal in the future from any of their registered devices (multiple device registration will be launched shortly) without having to re-enter their login information. The site also detects the geographical location of the user in order to provide optimum protection and service (language, targeted ads, etc.) and will soon provide an interface compliant with the major access control standards (OpenID, OATH, 3-D Secure).

Ok, this may not be bye bye @hackercroll but it’s definitely close. The 30-person company founded in 2004 also provides additional enterprise solutions using their patented technology.

Upnext: Mobilegov plans to go live in the US. But regardless, you can still register on and forget some of your passwords. :)
