[prMac.com] San Mateo, California - BuyVia, the first website and mobile app that combines in-store and online shopping across smart phones, tablets and laptops, has released a new version of its iOS App featuring password wallet integration for iOS 8. This updated version allows users to utilize the Touch ID to make purchases.
Consumers shopping via their iPhone or iPad can now enter their login information and password with one click. This iOS 8 compatible BuyVia app integrates 1Password's digital wallet to store all information securely. Strong, unique passwords can be created for all accounts, with the information encrypted. Consumers can unlock their credentials with one tap using the Touch ID fingerprint reader. This confidential information is also synched with Android, Mac and Windows platforms via Wi-Fi, iCloud or Dropbox.
"With new security breaches happening daily, consumers need to use a different login at every site, but doing so has been extremely inconvenient," said Norman Fong, CEO of BuyVia. "With our new version of the iOS BuyVia app, a simple tap of your finger unlocks login information, so no password needs to be remembered. This makes shopping online more convenient and secure, which is especially important this time of year with Black Friday and Cyber Monday just a few weeks away."
