heylogin is the idea of Dr. Dominik Schürmann and Vincent Breitmoser. The goal of the founders was one thing above all: to make IT security as simple and as secure as possible. During their time in the academic world they dealt with encryption technology. As security consultants they got to know the truth on the user side - bad passwords on Post-Its and in Excel spreadsheets, no control by decision makers, every employee was unintentionally responsible for IT security. Bad passwords were and still are the main problem. heylogin solves this problem by means of hardware encryption via smartphone.
About our software
heylogin simplifies the work by replacing the password with a swipe on the smartphone. After unlocking once, an employee can then log in to any website with just one click. This saves about 3 hours of work time per employee per month. At the same time, teamwork is also simplified; logins can be shared via drag & drop, while various access rights protect against misuse. On- and offboarding is also much easier for admins and decision makers - new profiles can be prepared before the start of work and released directly for the new person, departing employees can have their complete access revoked with one click.
This concept is already used by over 900 organizations on a daily basis. heylogin is developed in Germany and hosted on German servers. In the summer, heylogin was able to convince Mozilla Ventures, among other investors, of its vision of a password-free future and thus successfully closed its pre-seed financing round with €900,000. All employees are working every day to eliminate passwords for even more companies.
heylogin now serves more than 900 organizations around the world.
