Will web3 enable zero click onboarding for users?
In Web2, signing into applications often involves the exchange of personal data, creating potential security and privacy challenges. Each application creates new risks to the security and management of your personal information.
With the advent of Web3, a paradigm shift is on the horizon. There is a future where signing into an application doesn't entail exposing your data to developers or application owners. Instead, the application operates within the user's browser or mobile device.
As a result, user data remains securely within the application and is never shared with the developer. This opens the door to a seamless and secure digital experience, potentially eliminating the need for explicit consent for every piece of data shared.
In this decentralized future, we unlock the possibility of a zero-click login or onboarding process. Users could employ a Web3 wallet to instantly personalize or onboard to any website or application.
There would be security measures in place, ensuring automatic interactions occur only with verified and trusted applications listed on a blockchain-based trust registry.
Imagine visiting an online store where this is implemented. A plugin could automatically connect to your private data wallet, rebuilding the entire shopping website based on your preferences and past interactions.
Crucially, this personalization happens locally in your browser, without sharing any sensitive data with Shopify or the store owner.
This is part of our vision at Verida. More than just enabling web3 login or onboarding, we envision a future where interactions with apps and websites are seamlessly personalized.
This decentralized approach ensures that data is utilized on the user's computer, eliminating the risk of data leakage and making automatic consent a straightforward and secure process.
The days of compromising personal data in the name of convenience will soon be replaced by a decentralized, user-controlled future that replaces the centralized control of web2.
