CopSonic takes sonic and ultra sonic waves to create an authentication technology that works on all phones:

Sonic and Ultrasonic Authentication Solution Working on All Mobile Phones

The CopSonic SDK allows contactless multi-factor authentication based on ultrasounds or sounds. This SDK is the first to introduce an “airgap” with encrypted analog information into the digital circuit. The security level thus achieved by CopSonic reaches current military security levels.
CopSonic is a universal solution working on all feature phones, smart phones, smart watches, tablets, computers, smart devices, internet of things, etc. as long as they are equipped with speakers and/or a microphone. It is operational on all standard GSM networks, on the internet or any other TCP-IP compatible network. The solution requires no change of Telco or of the existing hardware.
CopSonic enables e-commerce, financial and cybersecurity industries to propose a universal and secure solution for strong authentication to all of their customers worldwide. This authentication solution is an alternative to the use of online and/or offline passwords.
PhonicAccess and GateSonic are anti-phishing use cases of this highly secured technology. Also, for the first time, CopSonic enables the use of smart-bracelets as a secure access key.
