Shayype Launches test.Shayype.com at Pboro Neighbourhood Watch AGM Shayype’s long awaited test site (test.shayype.com) has been launched, with a first public showing at the AGM of the Peterborough Neighbourhood Watch Association - where we faced some tough (but  good-natured!) questioning from an extremely clued up and security-minded audience. We also chose the event to launch our message that the world, in trying to fix the problem of password security by piling on more and more complexity, and simply trying to patch the issue with biometrics and identity devices, has... + continue reading

A string of characters we have to somehow remember, then input – all of which can be a pain. But the real pain is that such fixed codes, because they never change, can be easily captured by hackers, then re-used. And no-one then knows for sure who’s using that code. You, or the hacker?

What we’d like to do is change the world by giving everyone who uses large, public facing websites (Facebook, Twitter, Google etc) the chance to use hacker-resistant login/authorisation codes that change every time.
