It doesn't store your personal information anywhere except your own mobile device. Everything, including such sensitive data as your biometrics, is located on your device only.
There may be people around you who use Speciface to provide their contact information or other data via Bluetooth. This application offers you two ways to point the person of interest: using a camera or the gallery of locally accessible users. Take/pick a photo and all the information provided will be on your screen in a moment.
You should be aware that it may be preferable for some people to exchange a couple of messages with a stranger before deciding to speak in person or share own contact details. Another good idea is to specify some tricky question that should be asked on every incoming request. However, the requesting party can also start a conversation – just enter your greeting before making a request.
Quite often people want to provide information about themselves to a person nearby. Speciface offers an easy way to do it: with a single tap you can share your data at someone's request – quickly and safely. Besides, at certain events you may simply allow Speciface to give out your data to everybody around without the need of your intervention. Another useful option is to share your photo with everyone around you so that they can contact you when they find it in the gallery of accessible users.
When the data is received, one can simply tap on the icons to read your blog, send a message, make a call, or just tap on the photo to save everything in own "Contacts". Users can also create their own groups of users – "communities". This powerful feature lets everyone know if a nearby person belongs to a particular group – anytime, anywhere.
To pass on your own business card of high quality and exquisite design is always a pleasure. However, it's not the most convenient way to access contact information. Now you can offer a "virtual" equivalent of your business card: it provides the same freedom for design along with an unprecedented level of usability.
The same "business card" functionality can also be used to create individual cards for your employees. Depending on the type of your business it may be useful to show their duties and competences to your clients or customers when needed, as well as to simply inform of your special offers, etc.
Traditionally, on such events, as exhibitions or conferences, all participants are equipped with badges, which give some information about them. Speciface offers a special feature for event managers, which will enable them to provide much more to event visitors in a more convenient way: in order to get the information about any participant, each visitor only needs to use the Speciface application to take a photo of a participant's face (or its image).
Though Speciface provides all the information to users by means of near-field communications, event managers are free to use as many communication devices as they need to cover the whole area where particular event takes place.
