GoTrust ID to be preloaded on Acer computers

“GoTrust ID to be preloaded on Acer computers; GoTrust ID provides passwordless Windows Hello login and 2FA to Google and Facebook services using Phone based Biometrics.”

Irvine, California, January 9th, 2019 – Today, GoTrustID Inc (GoTrust) announced that in December 2018, Acer started shipping GoTrust ID preloaded on select devices including Windows laptops and desktops with BLE support. GoTrust ID is a universal phone authenticator that identifies a user through their iOS or Android-based phone, allowing users to quickly login without the use of a password. An additional layer of protection is offered utilizing the facial, fingerprint or iris biometrics sensors within the phone and then confirming the user identity using complex encrypted dialogues. There are no usernames or passwords to remember, just the user and their phone.

“Adding passwordless GoTrust ID to Acer computers makes them some of the most secure and easiest to use PCs available,” said Jade Zhou, AVP at Acer. “GoTrust ID makes it convenient to use a smartphone as an authentication token. ”

GoTrust ID is also the market first to support the users’ phones as FIDO U2F key over BLE to support two-factor authentication (2FA) for Google, Facebook, Dropbox, Salesforce, Amazon AWS and GitHub. GoTrust ID is a Windows Hello certified APP and supports passwordless login for the entire Microsoft eco system benefit by Hello.

“GoTrust is very excited to be working closely with Acer to help end the secure identity loophole,” commented Darren Lee, the CEO of GoTrust. “We are gratified by the confidence Acer has shown in our universal authenticator technology by shipping it with their computer systems.”

Personal demonstrations of how GoTrust ID solves the user’s password login issue can be arranged during CES at a time to suit you and/or your journalists. (Note to GoTrust: Acer does not have a CES booth that is open to the public. We are off-site and all of our press/customer meetings are pre-scheduled and will be locked well ahead of CES.)
