One Time Password

Send, protect, validate - with OTP via SMS

What is SMS OTP?

An SMS OTP (one-time password) is a secure authorisation method where a numeric or alphanumeric code is sent to a mobile number. This password is an added layer of security used to verify a user’s identity when logging in online or confirming an action.

More than just an authentication method

Implementing an SMS OTP on your website, software or app will add another level to your security, substantially decreasing the vulnerability of your customer’s data and information.

SMS security More secure than email

An SMS OTP is much more secure than an email OTP. If a potential hacker has email and password information for the login of an online platform or app, they likely have access to the connected email address as well.
