Arkami™ Launches Kickstarter Project for myIDkey™ to Support Universal Password Protection and Encryption for All Mobile and PC Devices

ALISO VIEJO, CA–(Feb 20, 2013) – Arkami™, Inc. today announced it has launched its Kickstarter campaign to fund its award-winning myIDkey™, the company’s flagship product that allows you to securely store all of your passwords and critical information on a portable Bluetooth / USB device. It is the industry’s first finger-swipe activated wireless device with voice-search and OLED screen that securely displays logins, passwords and ID information while on the go.

myIDkey is a complete password management system that auto-fills passwords across all frequently used web sites on all personal computers and smart mobile devices. Utilizing myIDkey apps for iPhone and Android, you can easily manage and edit passwords and encrypt select files to protect with your unique fingerprint.

Founded by Tareq Risheq, a serial entrepreneur with more than 25 years of experience in VC backed technology/CE companies, Arkami seeks to raise $150,000 in Kickstarter to help finalize product development and manufacturing and expand its marketing initiatives.

“With the ever-increasing digital lifestyle, we are constantly adding passwords to access our data, so many in fact, that we can’t remember them all,” said Tareq Risheq, founder and CEO of Arkami, Inc. “myIDkey solves this universal problem with a simple, portable solution that allows you to securely access your passwords and ID information at any time, from anywhere.”

“When we developed myIDkey, we knew we had a homerun — a position that was reinforced by the Consumer Electronics Association honoring it with three Innovation Awards at this year’s CES,” said Mark Thacker, COO of Arkami. “We are gaining momentum, and funding through Kickstarter will help take us to the next level.”

Built on an industry-leading ARM-based microcontroller, myIDkey secures ID and password information on an ultra-portable key, which features an easy-to-read OLED screen with navigation buttons. It also features voice search technology for quick and easy hands-free access to critical information. myIDkey includes an embedded biometric authentication for fingerprint activation, AES-256 bit encryption to protect your data, and multi-layer authentication for added security. If your myIDkey is lost or stolen, data will automatically be deleted after a set number of failed attempts to gain access.

myIDkey’s secure cloud-based service allows you to manage and synchronize your information across all of your devices. Integrated Bluetooth allows you to securely connect to your smartphone or tablet, manage your information and protect what matters to you. And, by using multiple myIDkeys you can share passwords and information between family members and trusted individuals. It is both Windows and Mac compatible and very easy to install and use. It also includes storage for music, photos and files.
