HumanID is the open-source single sign-on that guarantees anonymity and authenticity of users. The user is verified through SMS verification. Before authenticating the user to the partner website, we delete the user's phone number while creating a cryptographic hash as an identifier. At no point is any personal user information accessible to clients or stored on our servers. Clients decrease their moderation costs and vulnerability to data breaches and bot networks, while users enjoy privacy.
