1. What is Cobo Auth?
Cobo Auth is a multi-factor authentication and authorization tool that provides strong security protection for your account. Compared with traditional authentication tools, Cobo Auth is not only more secure, but also more convenient to use. It only needs to use FaceID or fingerprint recognition to complete the operation easily and conveniently.
2. How to provide protection? Why [more secure]?
Cobo Auth will generate a unique public and private key pair for each user. After the private key is generated, it is stored inside the device's security chip (never out of the security chip). When you perform an authorization operation, the private key is used to sign the message you authorize; the public key is used as a unique identity to verify the signature. We take your public key and provide a second layer of security for your account with a protection method based on public key authentication. Even if your account password is accidentally leaked, others cannot break into your account without using your Cobo Auth.
