Phone number verification widget

- 5 MIN READ - 03 Feb 2016

We’re very excited to bring you our latest upgrade to Messente’s 2-step verification products - the phone number verification widget. It’s a tool which makes user authentication and phone number verification completely plug and play for developers.

So why did we build the widget? Here’s the deal.

Messente delivers millions of authentication PIN codes and one time passwords every month and we talk to a lot of companies looking to upgrade their user security.

Most sites and web applications using 2-step verification today have had to build the verification process from scratch using an SMS messaging API to deliver the PIN codes. The reason for this is that most 2-step verification products offered for businesses today are simply one-way SMS messaging services packaged as authentication products.

On the other hand there are many businesses willing to set up 2-step verification but they don’t have the development resource to build one themselves. The verification widget is a tool for all of these companies as it offering the missing tool from a plug and play solution.

So now developers have the following options to choose from:


There is literally nothing left for you to build :)

Startup Conferences: What’s the point? (Slush 2017)

20 Oct 2017

With Slush coming up in about a month, it’s a good time ponder the purpose of large startup conferences. Many entrepreneurs head to conferences, like Slush, around the world and throughout the year looking for investments from venture capitalists and angel investors, yet there’s a lot more to gain from startup conferences. Think about it: there will be over 17,000 motivated and creative people in one place at one time. Get creative and gain as much as you can out of the experience.

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.
