User authentication using ambient sounds – Cooperation with Futurae

TaxLevel offers the highest levels of security and cutting-edge technology by using Futurae’s easy-to-use hands-free two-factor authentication

Security plays a crucial role in the cloud age! The addition of the classic password with additional security features is a mandatory measure for particularly sensitive data, but user-friendliness should not be left out on this.


Using the Cyber Security solution from the Swiss startup Futurae Technologies fits perfectly into the cloud concept of TaxLevel, as it provides a central data security solution. Futurae Technologies was founded by security researchers at ETH Zurich and offers comprehensive solutions and methods in the field of multi-factor authentication and data signing. Prerequisite is an app installed on the smartphone. Unique is the SoundProof technology, which is based on the comparison of ambient sounds of two devices for authentication. This method works without user interaction – more comfort is not possible. And it even works if the smartphone is in your pocket.

In addition to SoundProof, TaxLevel supports the Futurae methods ApproveMobile Auth, QR Code and TOTP for authentication.

The Futurae authentication methods are now used by TaxLevel and can be tested on our demo customer portal.
