2-step verification for Messente login

- 5 MIN READ - 17 Feb 2016

Starting from today you can make your login to Messente a lot more secure by enabling 2-step verification using your phone.

2-step verification adds one more step to login process - verifying yourself by entering PIN code which was sent to your phone.

The PIN code is sent only when needed - when you switch your browser, log in after long period of time, or try to log in from another country. This makes the login process simple and extra step is only required when the level of security is at risk.

The setup process takes less than a minute and it uses our own Number Verification Widget.

1. Enabling 2-step verification

To enable 2-step verification for your login, simply go to your Profile view and click "Enable 2-step verification" button. This redirects you to our Number Verification Widget where you can verify your phone number.

2. Verify your mobile phone number

First we need to verify if the phone number you want to use is correctly entered and can receive PIN codes via SMS.

3. Secure login

Next time you log in to Messente, you will receive PIN code via SMS. Just enter the PIN code and you are logged in!

3. Enjoy

That's it! Your Messente account is now as secure as your online banking account!

The economics behind undelivered, failed SMS messages    

17 Oct 2017

The cost and full impact of undelivered or failed messages isn’t immediately clear. The financial impact is not simply the combination of the failed SMS and the cost to resend the message, which isn’t very much at times. There are other indirect costs that result from undelivered SMS messages that matter from a financial perspective. Let’s take a deeper look into the ripple effect of undelivered messages, which make the reasons behind our focus on SMS delivery quality even more clear.

Here are a few examples.

Fraud and Security: 2FA Considerations for PSD2

10 Oct 2017

The second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) is less than three months away from enforcement. While the regulation’s text is lengthy, a key component of the law is its extended reach in comparison to the first directive. PSD2 applies to all payment service providers and affiliates, including account information service providers and payment initiation service providers. In addition, the law applies when at least one part of the transaction is in the European Union. This means that payment service providers and their affiliates outside of the EU must comply with the law when the payer is in the EU. The additional geographical reach guarantees the same level of security expectations for all EU residents regardless of the location of the payment service provider.
