The bCODE mobile scanning technology is a result of years of research and development efforts, resulting in optical scanning algorithms that provide high-reliability, high-speed scanning of secure credentials from the screens of mobile phones. This level of security provides additional comfort in ePayment, eCommerce and high value promotional offers and transactions that are initiated through bCODE mobile technology.
The unique and encrypted nature of each bCODE “instance” ensures no consumer will be able to create their own valid bCODE or guess another customer’s bCODE. In addition, a PIN-based authentication software system protects customers against incidents of stolen mobile devices in ePayment, eCommerce and high value coupon, ticket or loyalty offers.
The scannable string takes up to 39 characters while the remaining 100 to 120 characters carry useful code descriptive information (headers and footers) for customers on the mobile device receiving end. As an additional protective measure against identity theft, no personal user data gets stored within the bCODE itself.
