Please read this agreement carefully before accessing the SmartSignin web site or using the SmartSignin Service. By accessing the web site or using the Service, you agree to become legally bound by the Terms and Conditions of this agreement.
Description of Service.: The SmartSignin Service (the ``Service``) provides a system that allows a user access to a personal collection of information, including the ability to log in to multiple web sites with a single User ID and password, and to aggregate and categorize web sites that they frequent. In order to receive the Service, you will need to create an account and an ID and password for the SmartSignin web site. The user also has the option of using one or more of the multi-factor authentication methods in order to provide further security to the account.
These multi-factor authentication methods include:
Image based authentication (Coming soon)
Image verification - where the user selects an authentication image from among the image options given on the SmartSignin web site or a personal image uploaded by the user. The purpose of the image is to reduce phishing attempts.
Knowledge Based authentication - where the user submits five sets of security questions and answers. Three of the five secret security questions will be randomly asked if the user is unable to recall his SmartSignin ID or password or has misplaced his/her grid card.
Grid card authentication - the user can print or download a randomly generated grid card which has rows and columns of random alphanumeric characters that the user has to input upon login.
SMS One Time Password (Coming soon)
The use of the Service requires the user to obtain access to the Internet. The user must provide all equipment and pay all fees associated with such access to the Internet.
