Messente launches 2-step verification API

For the last two days we have been busy meeting all of our international partners here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This year’s event however is very special for us as we’re exited to announce the release of our 2-step verification API. It is a solution that makes it easy to build an extra layer of security on top of the usual website login system and validate mobile phone numbers.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the fastest growing mobile apps, finacial service providers, logistics and payment companies in Europe and elsewhere. The new verification API takes advantage of our extensive experience in delivering one time passwords and PIN codes to over 1000 mobile networks across the world.

We identify users based on their phone number by generating a unique PIN code and sending it to the user via SMS. The PIN is then submitted to the web by the user which completes the log in process.

The reason we developed a verification solution is that we see that an increasing number of companies are looking for ways how to better protect the personal data of their users. In the light of the password leaks we see happening everywhere 2-step verification is becoming very relevant for many industries, not only banks or big OTT platforms. Our new API is the fastest way of setting up secure phone based authentication.

The new 2-step verification API is available for everyone at messente.com/verify

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.
