Who we are:
humanID (www.human-id.org) is an ambitious open source project, aiming to preserve online privacy, stop fake news and end cyber-bullying.
The team includes several Harvard & MIT graduate students, as well as senior engineers, cyber-security experts and experienced entrepreneurs.
humanID is an anonymous, nonprofit and open-source online identity, replacing Social Sign-Ins (SSOs) such as ‘Login with Facebook’. The login enables complete privacy at full convenience. No password, no data stored. At the same time, we enable communities to block bots and abusive users.
humanID launched in July 2020 after 18 months of research and development, and experts from MIT, NATO and Google have confirmed the huge potential in fighting back social media manipulation, fake news and data leaks.
We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit where interns take over real responsibilities and experience a true tech startup, with a strong focus on your individualized learning goals! The majority of our engineering team is composed of Junior and Senior Computer Science students from Harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Columbia, Stanford and other esteemed universities.
