iDovos: Consumer Benefits

Protecting your identity should be as easy as flipping a switch…

Now it is that easy

The iDovos® ID fraud prevention system, developed by Mantissa Corporation, protects identity by giving you pinpoint control over when and how your identity is used. Credit and debit cards, bank and brokerage accounts, personal credit, and even identification numbers and official documentation can all be protected with the ease and simplicity of “flipping a switch.”


Now YOU have the keys; it’s YOUR turn to drive…

It’s human nature to want to chart your own course; everyone wants to be in charge of their own destiny.  Unfortunately, control is no longer the norm when it comes to identity. ID theft and ID fraud are growing at an unprecedented rate.  Especially hard hit, the U.S. economy has suffered billions of dollars in damage. Estimates indicate that ID theft and fraud will exceed the value of the illegal drug trade.  iDovos began as a simple idea in response to the question “If I own my identity why can’t I control how it is used?”. The answer, of course, is that you can.

We invite you to join the revolution in personal identity management.

iDovos™ is an ID theft/fraud prevention service that employs a patent pending technology called Positive Identity Control™ (PIC).

PIC is unique in that it gives the individual control over use of their identity and identity assets. PIC answers the following question for every transaction which relies on identity use:

Has the identity owner given consent for their identity to be used at this point in time and for this specific identity asset?

  • PIC relies on cooperative participation by identity owners, credit reporting agencies, and transaction processing entities.

  • Identity owners control identity assets with the ultimate goal of protecting use of their identity and financial assets.

  • Transaction processors make authorization decisions based on the identity account owner’s intent relative to the use of their identity. Stated another way, they interpret the on/off switch set by the PIC account owner.

  • CRA’s provide credit information used by lenders in the loan origination process. The following is a brief non-technical description of the role these organizations play in Positive Identity Control.

iDovos™ and the Consumer experience

You now control your identity assets (personal credit and card accounts) using an advanced Web interface and/or a touchtone phone. Your “credit assets” can be turned on for a specific period of time creating a window of usage or be set on autopilot so that daily management is not required. Assets can be set to run on specific schedules or simply left off until needed. When a card account is turned on, it can use the “egg-timer” capability. The card “expires” and becomes useless again after the designated period of time. Use-enabling information such as card account and social security numbers are NEVER stored or transmitted by iDovos.
