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.
