About the inventor

Matt Walker, Australian, invented the original PassWindow concept after many years spent researching various online authentication systems.

The high cost of many electronic systems, as well as their inability to protect against an ever-increasing array of complex attacks, forced Matthew to completely rethink of the way modern authentication is conducted.

While the security world looked for ever more complex and high tech solutions, which are increasingly vulnerable to ever more complex and high tech attacks, Matt looked for a radical new solution with pure simplicity at its core.

In the process, he created an entirely new secure method in online security – PassWindow
