Six ways Criipto makes it easy for startups

First off, here’s what we do to make life easier for any startup.

1. Simple integration

With Criipto, you don’t have to become a security expert.

Developers can integrate any eID in just a few hours.

You can connect Criipto Verify to any application, regardless of the language or stack it's written in. Then you simply choose which eIDs you want to use. It’s really that simple.  

Criipto Verify follows the widely adopted OpenID Connect and OAuth2 specifications. We handle all the complexity in the background, so your developers don't need to understand every detail of the protocol.
