SMS for 2FA Security

SMS Two Factor Authentication (Dual Factor Authentication) is a verification process for securing account logins for websites, software, and applications.
SMS for 2FA Security

Many consumers use the same passwords across many different websites and apps. With data hacks and leaks being a common occurrence, consumers still expect businesses to be the ones protecting their data.

Protect your customers with SMS Security

When trying to access their account, the user is sent a text message to their phone with a unique number. The user can then verify their login attempt with this number in a process called SMS Two Factor Authentication (SMS 2FA).

SMS one time passwords offer customers a safe way to access their accounts, especially when they forget their passwords. After their first use, these passwords can’t be reused or stolen by a third party.
