Authentication Factors

When it comes to security, it's best practice not to rely on a single layer of protection, and authentication is no different. That's why the LaunchKey Platform supports and encourages the use of multi-factor authentication through a variety of optional in-app authentication factors that you can employ to better protect yourself. True multi-factor authentication (MFA) consists of employing all three possible factors of authentication: possession, inherence, and knowledge factors. The LaunchKey Platform supports all three factors through the following features.



With geofencing, you can ensure your device is located within one or more specific geographic zones in order to authorize an authentication request. Learn More


Biometric Fingerprint Scan

With the fingerprint scan, you can use the unique biometric signature of your fingerprint to authorize an Authorization Request with the LaunchKey Mobile Authenticator Learn More


Bluetooth Proximity Device Factor

A Bluetooth proximity device factor ensures one or more of your Bluetooth devices (e.g. a FitBit) are connected and within range to your device prior to authorizing n Authorization Request. Learn More


Circle Code

Similar to the traditional rotary combination locks found on lockers, the numberless circle code works similar to a PIN code, except a pattern of circular movements is memorized and compared for authentication. Learn More


PIN Code

The traditional in-app PIN lock uses a pattern of numbers memorized and compared later for authentication. Learn More
