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

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.”

Next-generation Omnichannel API is well underway

10 Apr 2018

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.
