The Sound-Proof authentication products do not require interaction between the user and the phone.

Sound-Proof checks the proximity of the user’s phone to the device being used to log in. The proximity of the two devices is verified by our AI-enhanced algorithms that compare the ambient noise recorded by their microphones. Audio recording and comparison are fast and invisible to the end-user. Sound-Proof can be easily deployed as it works with major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge) without plugins.
