Grape ID taps LISNR to Enable One Stop Proximity Identity Verification

Today, LISNR, the global leader in ultrasonic contactless proximity verification, announced a partnership with Grape ID, an innovative digital passport that ensures the security of personal information. In coming together the two companies will be able to provide a frictionless identity verification solution utilizing LISNR’s ultrasonic technology.

“Digital identity fraud has accelerated with the pandemic economy. Grape ID™ is looking to be the trusted consumer login for the entire internet and they understood that their underlying value rested primarily on secure data transfer. They understood the importance in choosing a proven and secure method of proximity verification and realized that LISNR would allow them that capability.” – Eric Allen, CEO, LISNR

Previously Grape ID™ made use of QR codes to initiate transactions. By leveraging LISNR’s proximity transmission, Grape ID™ is able to deliver a much simpler, secure and efficient solution for identity verification.

“LISNR’s ultrasonic technology will also allow users to login to websites, return car rentals, prove identity to a bank teller, and any other Grape ID™ transaction where two users have a mic and speaker. Their easy to implement solution will allow consumers to transact at retailers without having to touch pin-pads or exchange cards.” – Rob Andersen, CEO, Grape ID™

LISNR’s ultrasonic ‘data-over-sound’ technology enables contactless proximity verification and authentication across commerce experiences for merchants, financial service providers, and mobility companies. Today, multiple Fortune 100 companies trust LISNR to power data transmission & authentication between devices. Founded in 2012, LISNR is located in Oakland, CA, and Cincinnati, OH. Major investors include Visa, Intel, Jump Capital, NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Mercury Fund, R/GA, and Synchrony Financial. To learn more about the LISNR technology visit: or email
