We are a highly motivated team drawn together by our belief that the world needs a better system of trust. Hotpyp’s focus is the relentless pursuit of digital trust and security.
Bringing back what trust is all about
Trust is at the very fabric of human civilization and interwoven into all aspects of our lives, forming the basis of our relationships. But what about our presence on the internet, our digital world, which is inherently insecure?
We at Hotpyp believe that trust should be available to everyone. To make that a reality, it needs to be easy to control, and not just for those who are technically savvy. While the underlying technology is sophisticated, the way it operates doesn’t need to be complicated. Part of giving trust back to you is ensuring that it’s both powerful and easy to use.
We also believe that digital trust should be as central to your life in the digital world as it is in the real world, and not just for the ultra-security conscious.
With Hotpyp’s patented technology, we are striving to put trust back where it belongs, directly in the hands of those who have earned it.
Trust Means the World to Us
It would be difficult to overstate the importance of trust. Meaningful relationships need a solid foundation of trust. Businesses need trust to conduct transactions and run their operations. Even society itself needs trust to function effectively. Because trust is a real-world concept, enabling it to work in the digital world requires a new approach; one that brings together four dimensions of trust.
Trust begins with you controlling your own identity.
Trust is built on a foundation of security and privacy.
Trust manifests through privileged access.
Trust becomes mainstream through seamless usability.
If you trust someone, you allow them access to yourself and to the people and things you value. Privileged access is a dynamic relationship that changes by either growing or diminishing. With Hotpyp, you are always in control of access.
Modeled After Real-World Trust
We think digital trust should work as it does in the real world. In the real world, you don’t need a “trusted third party” to establish and maintain trust with someone. Instead, it’s a relationship formed directly between the parties of trust.
Many people may never realize that the third-party model is how most digital trust still works, and it uses a system that’s been around since the beginning of the internet. That worked well enough in the past, but it no longer fits societal norms. Why would you rely on a third-party intermediary when you can have a direct, reliable method of trust? Why trust something so important to someone you don’t even know?
Trust Should be on Your Terms
Just because someone (or some automated bot) knows how to contact you, it shouldn’t give them unchecked permission to intrude or annoy you.
You should be in control of who, how, and even when you trust others. Requiring terms that you set, places the power and control in your hands, where it belongs.
Tackling the World’s Trust Problem
is an epidemic.
and offensive intrusions.
and relentless interruption.
Society’s digital dependence has outpaced the capabilities of current underlying trust systems, and the situation continues to worsen. We need to develop better methods to keep untrusted human behavior in check because the toll that trust failure takes on our lives is substantial. These digital trust failures are an unacceptable drain on productivity and create personal and business losses costing trillions of dollars. And with the growing distrust of governments and large corporations to protect our private information, the time has come to fundamentally redesign trust and security.
