What makes SnapID™ different to other authentication products?

SnapID™ is a next-generation authentication system developed by TextPower using the patented TextKey™ technology. It replaces complex, costly and high-maintenance systems with a simple approach that leverages the power of advanced messaging technologies and a cellular phone’s “fingerprint.”

Many websites/companies haven’t taken the appropriate steps to secure their environment because of the complications and expense associated with two-factor authentication. SnapID™ offers a way for companies of any size to implement authentication quickly and inexpensively.

SnapID™ eliminates:

  • Usernames & Passwords (when there is nothing to steal, there is nothing stolen)
  • Need for a smartphone (Any cell phone that can send a text message can be used with SnapID™)
  • Significant up-front expense of other two-factor authentication systems
  • Complex installation of hardware and/or software
  • Man-in-the-Middle and Man-in-the-Browser attacks
  • Purchasing and maintaining an inventory of “tokens”
  • Tracking, replacing and maintaining these tokens
  • Lost or misplaced tokens or insufficient supply when needed
  • Learning curve for users

How does SnapID™ compare to other authentication technologies?



SnapID™ is free for most applications. Companies that require SLAs, phone support, custom installation, customization and a dedicated shortcode should contact TextPower, Inc. for more information.
