Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Eye Scanning Password Authenticator

New York, NY, March 10, 2015 - Continuing its 167-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Eye Scanning Password Authenticator, a device that confirms a user's identity before granting access to secure websites or sensitive data.

Employing the same biometric technology trusted to verify travelers at international borders, the device has a small camera that scans and saves the 240 distinctive pattern points of the iris, converting them into an encrypted ID that cannot be forged or duplicated.

Once identified, users can securely link email, social media, banking, utilities, and shopping accounts without the need to keep a list of separate passwords.

"This ID is unlike standard passwords that can still be entered if acquired by a hacker," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. "It's more secure than writing your passwords down on paper and hiding them and it's more convenient because you can't forget the non-forgettable."

The Eye Scanning Password Authenticator is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $279.95. For more information about this product, please visit, or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at
