RemAuth Control application

The easiest way to authenticate


With biometric checking

Realtime and End-to-end security

RemAuth Control 3.0 is the remote control application for smartphones of the RemAuth passwordless authentication service.

App Stores
Windows  (beta version)
macOS  (beta version)

Get started in a matter of moments

Launch the application...

On first launch, you must enter an email address that you will use as one of your identifiers for the application.

In a second time, you will be able to link other addresses to your installation.

... and associate an email address

Each email address associated with the application must be confirmed by clicking a confirmation link sent to that address.

With information about your device and the visual codes attached to the operation, you can be assured of the origin of the message.

From the authentication perspective, the application thus acquires the same reliability as the email inbox where the confirmation link was clicked.

Authenticate in real time

Authentication on service demand

Unlike the traditional messaging systems such as email or SMS, the RemAuth Control application is notified in real time of authentication requests.

On reception of a request, a progress bar displays the remaining time before time-out.

In case of a time-out, you will have to renew the request.

If your smartphone supports it and is well configured (i)(ii), biometric checking may be required to confirm your identity.

  1. iPhones 5S+ and Android 6+ equipped with sensor.
  2. Please see the RemAuth Control ABOUT section to know if your device supports biometric checking.

Authentication by QR-code

RemAuth also allows service providers to login using QR-codes . For security reasons, the QR-codes have a lifetime of about a minute.

You just have to scan one of those codes by pressing the AUTHENTICATION SCANNER button. Then, if you have several email identifiers associated to your application, select one of them.

The service behind the QR-code is notified in real time, all you have to do is login.

Whatever the method used, the security and privacy are guaranteed through the whole authentication chain, from the service provider to your application.

Keep your identity under control

Use as many identifiers as you need


The same way you have associated a first email address on initial application launch, you can add other email identifiers. You just have to open the ACCOUNTS section and press the button.

You can pair a cell phone number to each email identifier in order to be able to authenticate by SMS. You just have to press the button of the required identifier to start the pairing process.

At any time you can unpair a phone number by pressing the button.

Log in to as many services as you want


With the SERVICES section, you can view the list of all the subscribed services where one or more of your email identifiers are used to authenticate with RemAuth.

At any time, you can disable or re-enable the use of one of your identifiers for a given service.

Display your authentication log


The Log section displays the list of all the authentication attempts and their results with all your identifiers, all your services and all the available authentication methods.

For each entry, the result of the attempt is summarized by an icon:

  •   The authentication did not succeed before its deadline.
  •   The authentication has been rejected by the application.
  •   The authentication has been accepted by the application.
  •   The authentication by QR-code has been completed.
  •   The authentication has succeeded by email.
  •   The authentication has succeeded by SMS.

  When the biometric checking has been used, the user email address is preceded by a small icon .

Manage your installations of the RemAuth app


You can use the RemAuth app in parallel on several smartphones.

In case of theft or loss of one or your devices, you can remotely dissociate its RemAuth installation remotely in order to prevent its misuse. This function does not apply to your current smartphone.

 Each device description is preceded by a visual which symbolizes its biometric capabilities.

Reset the app


On reset, all the identifiers are cleared and the app is set back to its initial configuration.
