Consumer Identity lockr Empowers SSO for Publishers
NEW YORK, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- lockr, the only consumer-first identity layer for the Internet, announced the Identity lockr; a suite of free APIs to help publishers and brands capture consented first party data. Interoperable across both browsers and devices, the Identity lockr lets publishers detect and monitor machine-generated emails. Without knowing who their customers are, publishers cannot move forward with proposed industry standards around identity and privacy-positive innovations like clean room environments.
Identity lockr, designed in direct response to the challenges posed by new privacy regulations and third-party cookie deprecation, is a platform for publishers to manage user registration and capture first-party data while respecting user consent and communication preferences. lockr’s SSO integrates like other OAuth providers and offers several key functionalities for its partners:
The proliferation of machine-generated, fake email addresses has hurt publishers in several key ways:
Since most anonymous and machine-generated email solutions provide users with a different email address for every site, a complex web of identity has taken shape which leaves the publisher without legitimate targeting capabilities and lost revenue.
“Facilitating a meaningful exchange of information with consumers is one of the top priorities in our industry. As we continue to evolve into a privacy and preference-centric web model we need to figure out how to maintain the free and openness of the web that consumers have come to know and rely on while also providing support to the publishers that create the content,” said Ryan Nathanson, Chief Operating Officer at SHE Media. “The machine-generated email trend has been a proven burden, and, in any case we don't believe the publisher-to-consumer relationship should merely run on auto-pilot. We love to see companies like lockr that exist to help facilitate an equitable exchange between publisher and audience while solving for both sides of privacy and monetization in a manner that is low lift and low friction.”
Businesses positioned between a publisher and its audience are purposefully attempting to own the rails and levy a future tax on the interoperability of audiences for profiling, targeting, and measurement. Publishers must act now and build sustainable relationships with users and respect individual consent for tracking, and choice for communication preferences.
“In today’s world, most consent management platforms (CMP’s) act as a lawyer for the enterprise. Our solution flips that dynamic whereas lockr acts as an agent for the consumer, keeping the user’s best interest in mind, yet enabling publishers to capture the first party data they need for marketing and advertising,” said Keith Petri, Founder and CEO of lockr. “This new release optimizes the publisher’s relationship with each visitor by minimizing the usability of machine generated emails and respecting individual’s consent and choice. Our new capability aligns us with publishers best interests while allowing consumers to maintain control over their personal information.”
“A clean and simple publisher solution doesn’t exist in the market today,” said Pete Spande. “The current propositions and workaround are overly complex and ultimately do not provide individuals with any additional control over their privacy and other preferences. lockr directly solves for this in addition to tangible consumer value in a friendly way. There is a trade off for a publisher, but it is the cleanest solution proposed to date. This is the solution publishers need, versus the laundry list of desires they might have.”
