Personal Data Misconceptions in Mobile Access
In our last article, we talked about how mobile access control (using your smartphone to open doors) is better than traditional methods and how to restore access if your smartphone is lost or stolen. In this article, we will discuss how companies make sure mobile access apps on smartphones are secure while also protecting the owner’s personal information.
Before we start, here are some main points from the last article:
Smartphones are a popular choice for secure access control because they can replace keys and RFID credentials.
Mobile access is easy to adjust and cheaper to manage than traditional methods.
Mobile access allows employees to enter physical and digital spaces using their smartphone as a credential. It uses NFC or BLE technology to confirm permission.
If an employee’s smartphone is lost or stolen, their access can be immediately revoked to prevent unauthorized access to company properties.
It’s a good idea for companies to have two-step authentication to make sure only authorized people can use the mobile access app. For example, a PIN can be required before using the app.
