But how can SecurePass be trusted?

GARL, the bank behind SecurePass.

Unlike traditional service providers that come from an IT background, GARL is an independent and neutral Swiss Bank for Digital Identities born in 2008 and has a strong banking background. GARL aims to honor the Swiss centennial tradition of quality banking to create innovative and secure products for the digital era.


Inspired by Swiss laws of 1934 on bank secrecy, customers’ privacy and protection are GARL’s top priorities.
GARL’s multi-datacenter multi-national facilities have countermeasures against digital breaches, guaranteed by the same teams who protected most of the European financial institutions: their internal Security Intelligence Bureau is at the heart of the design and protection of the bank’s infrastructure.
