Is that product genuine or fake? Around the globe, consumers are using Authentic Vision’s CheckIfReal app on smartphones from over 100 different manufacturers to verify product authenticity.

Salzburg, Austria. March 5, 2020: Authentic Vision today released data on the number of supported smartphones and global reach of its authentication platform and reaffirmed its best-in-class position in the worldwide anti-counterfeiting and product authentication sector.

Authentic Vision’s anti-counterfeiting and product authentication solution, including its mobile authentication app CheckIfReal, supports smartphones from over 100 different manufacturers.  This includes every smartphone and platform, surpassing the reach of other authentication platforms and providing users with the peace-of-mind that they can check product authenticity from their device.

The consumer-friendly app has authenticated genuine products from more than 150 countries around the globe. By using their smartphone and the free app to scan the Holographic Fingerprint™ tag affixed to products, consumers can be assured that the product is genuine.

The mobile authentication app CheckIfReal runs on every device and platform, including iPhones and all Android smartphones from a range of manufacturers. The app also runs on lesser-known and exotic devices such as the Black Shark gaming smartphone, the Doro 824 SmartEasy smartphone recommended for seniors and first-time smartphone users, and the Schok Freedom Turbo smartphone.

While you might not have heard of all these devices, fake products and product adulteration are a global problem requiring secure and easy-to-use solutions that work on a global scale.

Concurrent with the list of smartphones running the app, Authentic Vision also released data from its real-time analytics platform on the Top 20 countries with the highest number of product scans where the CheckIfReal app is used to verify authentic and genuine products.
