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 :)

A note on keeping things real

17 Apr 2018

Over the years, I've had the good fortune of talking to and doing business with many entrepreneurs and CEOs from a variety of industries. Some are first-time founders of small startups, while others are amazingly experienced serial entrepreneurs. Many of them are extremely successful in what they do.

So naturally, while listening to them talk about their businesses, I've always tried to spot any fundamental takeaways –the small drops of universal business advice distilled from those hundreds of conversations.

And it seems to me that a lot of the most profound business truths seem to point to a direction that I would call, "keeping it real.”

Over the last few months we’ve been setting the direction of our Omnichannel messaging API and our development team has started working on it. Considering transparency, we wanted to share the progress we’ve made on the API and give our clients something to look forward to, as well as helping clients prepare their systems for the next generation of our A2P messaging API.

You're protected from the pitfalls of grey routes

03 Apr 2018

“Grey routes” is a loosely used term in the telecommunications industry. Frankly, the industry-specific meaning of grey routes is useless to most of our clients. Brands and businesses send messages to their customers and they expect those messages to be delivered, which is what our SMS API does well.

However, it’s important to understand the premise of grey routes, because they affect SMS service quality, an important topic to us and we hope is important to businesses that use A2P SMS APIs.
