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 LaunchKey supports and encourages the use of multi-factor authentication through a variety of
optional in-app security 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. LaunchKey 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.
With the fingerprint scan, you can use the unique signature of your
fingerprint to authenticate with LaunchKey.
A Bluetooth factor ensures one or more of your Bluetooth devices (e.g. a FitBit) are
connected and within range to your device prior to authorizing a request.
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
The traditional PIN code uses a pattern of numbers memorized and compared later
for authentication. Learn More
When a factor is added, you can set when that factor must be checked by setting the switch to "Always" if the factor is to be
checked in all authorization requests. Otherwise, “When required” will have it checked when the request requires that
type of factor, or it’s needed to meet the minimum requirements to respond to it.
You can toggle the verification switch between “Always” and “When required” once you go
into the Settings screen of a set up factor--here is where the Factor Check Protection
comes in. When you flip the switch, it will take one (1) hour for the change to become
effective, unless it’s a Circle Code, PIN Code or Fingerprint factor (if available)
which are verified right away and the toggle happens immediately.
|Possession Factor:||Something an individual retains physical possession of
|Inherence Factor:||Something inherent to an individual (e.g. biometry, geo-location)
|Knowledge Factor:||Something an individual knows
