LifeFiles Users

Three User Types

LifeFiles has two main user types: Helpers and Owners. Three counting the platform's administrator(s).

Document Owner

Document Owners are the heart of LifeFiles. These are the proprietors of their documents that wish to backup, upload, store and safe keep their digital files.

Login Page

Document Helper

Document Helpers are case managers, advocates or document clinicians of LifeFiles. They exist to help Document Owners upload and notarize their documents

Login Page

Administrator

LifeFiles Administrators are the architects of the platform. They adapt the application to the contextual needs of where LifeFiles exists. Responsibilities include setting up document types, delineating role permissions and toggling features.

Verification Page

How can you trust digitally notarized documents?

We developed a verification page that breaks down all encryption, decryption, hashing and verification steps in a comprehensive application, thoroughly examining each document to determine whether it is a valid notarized and shareable document.

Digital signature is used

Accessibility

Multi-Modal Login

A LOGIN ACCESSIBILITY SOLUTION

Simple & Powerful

Accessibility Made Easy

Any worthwhile application starts with a comprehensive onboarding process. We made ours accessible by offering a variety of login methods in addition to the conventional username and password.

SECURE & PRIVATE

User Tested and approved by People Experiencing Homelessness

With a pool of more than 30 candidates, we built an onboarding quiz that picks out login methods that are suited to each user's individual needs.
