# Unikname Connect: The next-generation Authentication Solution

Unikname Connect is a privacy-by-design authentication solution, rewarding users who want to make internet a safer place.

Unikname™ is an European next-generation authentication solution, passwordless, and working with a @unikname (a pseudo). Private-by-design and secured by the unikname.network blockchain, it's a reliable alternate to former social authentication solutions.

# Privacy-by-design

User privacy comes first. Unikname Connect is entirely built with the idea to keep user's connections private. Unikname does not collect any personal data (name, phone number, address, connection history...) at any time. The system will never use your UniknameIDentifier to trace your habits and behaviors on the Internet.

Our technology makes it possible to customized user experience and services without collecting user data. Most of data are stored on user's smartphone and fully controlled by the user himself, and no one else.

Unikname Connect protects internet businesses from espionage. User's connections are not traceable by third parties tracking tools. Only the user himself and the platform know their relationship.

# Unikname Rewards its Users

Thanks to UNIK Tokens, Unikname users are encouraged to maximize use of their @unikname to log in to any websites by rewarding them. Every unikname user who sign-up and login to a website receives rewards. These rewards are digital tokens called UNIK Tokens.

Partner platforms using Unikname Connect offer promotional coupons for Unikname users. UNIK Tokens can be exchanged against vouchers or promotional coupons to be redeemed on any partner platforms.

# Simplest Strong Authentication

Since strong authentication is becoming a standard, user experience is downgrading due to authentication processes becoming more complex (e.g.combining password plus code sent by SMS, email confirmation requests...). In this context Unikname Connect provides a disruptive UX User Experience with no more password to remember, allowing instant login and frictionless sign-up to any websites.

Unikname Connect simplifies day to day use of a secured internet.

# Highly Secure

2FA strong authentication: Unikname Connect is a 2FA strong authentication solution by design, relying on a smartphone app and a PIN Code or biometric recognition. Technically Unikname Connect relies on latests oAuth and OpenID Connect authentication protocol standards. User accounts are more protected against hacks and data theft.

Anti-Phishing: Unikname Connect may inhibits phishing hack attempts of user’s access, protecting user's web account. There's no more userid and password to steal, and theft of authentication tokens has no value for a hacker. We adds a layer of cryptographic protection over the oAuth authentication protocol, in such a way that the authentication tokens can only be used only on a specific web domain name.(Anti-Phishing feature requires a specific implementation)

# New customer acquisition channel

Unikname Connect becomes a new customer acquisition channel. The large community of @unikname users receive incentive to explore websites using Unikname Connect.
