With the growing concerns of online security, it’s important to find ways to keep yourself and your data secure. One way is an app that I recently discovered called Liquid Avatar that allows you to create a fully customisable biometric and blockchain secured digital version of yourself. That lets you share what you want, when you want and with whoever you want. You can create an avatar to look like yourself and share only the information you want. It gives you the option of creating different icons for different groups of networks or business. You have full control of your Avatar and decide what information is seen by everyone and how it’s used.
Liquid Avatar gives you full and total control over your private data and potentially reducing any opportunity for identity fraud. When an Avatar has created the app guarantees that only that one person who creates it can access it. There is verifiable information within the data that ensures that the Avatar created is as unique as the real person.
Once you download the app, you will need to create the Avatar and register your data. Start off by selecting a base character that would represent you in the digital world. You have the option of skin, hairstyle, eyes, nose, chin, mouth, and much more. Enough to help you look almost as how you are in the real world. Once you save the Avatar you will have to allow the app access to your camera to take a facial image. This facial image will allow you to log in once all signed up. You then set a password for an extra layer of security. You can then start to use your Avatar how you see fit.
The app is easy to use and even though I had a few goes the app didn’t recognise my face. I was able to eventually get it to work as it should after good lighting and angle.
Liquid Avatar is free to download and create the first Avatar. You can purchase more Avatars in the Avatar marketplace.
