What are the ideas behind the SECRID products? What do the SECRID founders themselves say about their products?
"In recent years, the contents of wallets have undergone revolutionary changes. Traditional coins and paper money have been replaced by high-tech cards. Not only has convenience increased, the risks have, as well. The new generation of SECRID wallets protects both your money and your privacy.”
René van Geer (co-founder of SECRID)
“Security is the heart of our products, but perhaps just as important is that they feel good and make you smile. I enjoy hearing the stories from enthusiastic users who like our wallets so much they find themselves spontaneously demonstrating them to others.”
Marianne van Sasse van IJsselt, (co-founder of SECRID)
