This invention discloses a new system and method to protect our confidential information entered on mobile or tranditional device from peeper.

This system contains an enhanced input module of smart/tranditional device and matched parser of wearable device. Confidential information is stored in wearable device. Simply end users only need to input something on smart device or an ATM, then this information is passed to the matched wearable device nearby and then wearable device sends back the real password to smart device or ATM to get the proper permission. Information passed between smart/tranditional device and wearable device is encrypted.

In this way, real confidential information is not visible to anyone. Our account is safe even our device is stolen and the information entered is peeped.
