Identify what each artwork is with a

SecureID Tag

An immutable and secure proximity chip embedded in an attractive label is attached to the back of an art piece using a conservationist-approved adhesive. Each tag receives a permanent unique identifier that stays with it for its lifetime.

Modern smartphones can instantly detect each piece's unique identity - whether on a gallery wall, in storage, or in a collection.

  • Easily identify each piece during shipping, in storage, or while on display at art fairs or shows … with any smartphone and without physical contact
  • Post-sale, allow art pieces to be traced back to your gallery, enhancing your trusted reputation for years after they leave your control

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I install the tag myself?
    While self-installation is possible, Authentify recommends an authorized art handler install each tag. We offer installation services as well as detailed certification for professionals.
  • How is a tag attached?
    SecureID Tags are usually attached to the reverse side of a painting on the canvas stretcher using a conservator-approved BEVA adhesive.
  • What happens if someone removes the tag?
    Each tag is designed to fail if removed. A connected Dossier would indicate a missing or damaged tag and alert the owner.
  • How long does a tag last?
    Tags have no power requirements and are designed to last for decades. As technology changes, backwards-compatible readers should always be available.

Preserve the paper trail of each piece with a

Digital Dossier

Data for each piece is now centralized and stored securely in an online digital repository: legal documents, provenance, reference literature, past certificates of authenticity, sales records, loss registry, AIS certification and other relevant material.

Now you have an immutable audit trail that can be easily shared during the purchase process and transferred to a buyer with a click.

  • Pre-sale, improve buyer confidence by easily sharing  condition reports, catalogues raisonné, or previous sale receipts
  • Give sophisticated buyers ways to confirm each piece’s authenticity, without the need for third party evaluation
  • Stand out from the crowd as the “trusted place to buy art”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is Dossier information created?
    Our online platform allows owners and authorized associates to add a wide array of descriptive information, documents, and files to the dossier for each piece. Our qualified curation staff can assist.
  • What happens to Dossiers when pieces are sold?
    When ownership of a piece changes hands, the seller authorizes the transfer of associated data and documentation to the new owner.
