SlickLogin works on a smart identification technology which uses high-frequency sound waves in order to streamline the authentication login process for user.
The technology gets operated through a user’s smartphone and doesn’t require any complex interaction.
The security technology app runs on the user’s cellphone, picks up the sound, analyses it and sends back a signal confirming the person is an authorized user.
A user just has to place his/her smartphone near to their tablet/laptop and will be able to login.
