For 86%, data protection is a priority

The recent data breaches from web giants only contributed to the overall decline of consumer trust. For 86%, data protection is a priority when choosing online services (Dark Reading).


Have you ever wondered how much of your personal information you offer to online networks with a disregard for your personal privacy? 

Your users surely have too. We all have been guilty of taking the easy option to log into an online platform using our Facebook, Gmail, Linkedin (or any other social accounts), even if we all know they are using our data to shape our behaviour.

They’d love to know what website or app users are connecting to, how often they do, or even more precise information about what they do in them. Exactly how much data web giants get from web platforms that use their login services isn’t clear, but if you’re not comfortable with a company potentially knowing a lot about your users or your business, it’s best not to link your platform to that company.
In a more and more connected world, people are starting to realize how difficult it is to keep track of what sensitive information has been collected about them and who has access to it.

“Privacy isn’t about hiding bad things. It’s about protecting what defines us as human beings : our day-to-day behavior, our personality, our fears, our relationships, and our vulnerabilities”

Privacy is Unikname’s core value and we’ve built our solution from the ground up with that in mind.


Unikname Connect is a clean alternative to social authentication solutions.

We want businesses to increase trust with their audience by giving them the opportunity to access their online content or use their online services without violating their right to privacy.

  • No log — We do not make use of personal information and do not keep trace of connection history. We do not have any economic incentive to do so since our business model isn’t based on users data trade. User’s data will be securely saved on their Unikname App.
  • 100% open source — Our source code will be publicly accessible so everyone will be able to audit it and have a look through it.
  • Decentralized — Our solution is based on a Blockchain technology and does not use any third party servers. We guarantee a private end-to-end connection between businesses and users.
  • Anonymity — User’s logging in with Unikname Connect only use their @unikname (can be a pseudo of their choice), an universal and self-sovereign identifier that can be used everywhere.

“Confidentiality is an ethical duty, privacy is a right rooted in common law”

Our main concern is to provide users with a respectful authentication solution leading to greater values such as transparency, confidentiality and trustworthy.
