PlayApp Offers Free Open-Source Alternative to Microsoft's Passport
DALLAS, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- PlayApp, LLC, Internet distributor of protected PlayApps, in the form of digital books, music, videos, business apps, and streaming channels, announced today that they are offering their PlayApp Key technology as a free open-source alternative to Microsoft's Passport. PlayApp Keys, which are key-chain sized portable USB devices consumers can purchase from PlayApp.com for $44 each, give consumers complete control over many of their security needs. PlayApp Keys, when used with the free PlayApp Player program, allows consumers to instantly log-on to websites. Other uses include generating codes for encrypting/decrypting files and generating/using PGP passphrases for secure email/real-time communications. "We feel it's important to let consumers know that there's an alternative that doesn't require them to give up their personal information to any one company. We also want to let website owners know about free open-source code they can use to allow PlayApp Key owners to instantly log-on to their websites. All interaction between consumers and websites stays with them and isn't revealed to anyone else," says John Willsey, inventor of PlayApps and PlayApp Keys. Each PlayApp Key is pre-programmed with random algorithms, so no two are alike. Because PlayApp Keys generate random alphanumeric codes, they are future-proof and can be easily used with any application requiring randomly generated security codes. PlayApp Keys are small USB plug & play devices that can be carried around on a key chain and taken anywhere the consumer goes and uses a computer, at home, work, or on the road. Use of the PlayApp Key requires the PlayApp Player software. The free full-featured PlayApp Player software with integrated MP3/PlayApp player and security/browser capabilities is available at PlayApp.com . Use of the PlayApp Player's browser capabilities requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher installed. PlayApp Key technology can be used with all operating system platforms, but future plans for porting PlayApp programs only involve Linux at this time. Patent pending security features of the PlayApp Player software include generating random 8 to 64 character alphanumeric codes for use in password access, encrypting/decrypting files, accessing digital wallets and creating/using PGP passphrases for secure email/real-time communication. For extra security in case the PlayApp Key is lost or stolen, consumers if they wish, have the option of using PIN code(s) with some or all of the security features just described. By offering a complete, easy to use security solution for consumers to use when accessing websites, encrypted files, digital wallets, PGP passphrases, along with rich multi-media PlayApps that they can purchase, PlayApp has solved the complex and seemingly insurmountable problems regarding Internet personal security for consumers and digital media piracy for artists.
