Provides additional layer of security
Passwords are not enough .61% of people reuse passwords across devices and accounts, and 81% of data breaches rely on weak or compromised passwords. A robust security framework has to be multi-layered in order to be effective.Verifing customers account through SMS gives an extra layer of security and ensures that their data is safe and only they can access that.
For Port Networks, SMS has proved extremely valuable in reducing internal frictions and inefficiencies for customer support centres. According to Gartner, 20-50% of all IT calls are for password resets. It seems like people just don’t enjoy remembering multiple passwords

  • Best Practices
    Use 2FA to confirm sensitive actions
    2FA is the extra layer of authentication that goes beyond the basic model of a username and a password. When you log in an account, the website will ask you for a code from your phone. If an attacker doesn’t have your phone, they can’t get the code, so they can’t log in.
    Your OTP should be in first few words
    • Your verification code is 4343 for your Quickr request.
    • 4343 is your Facebook confirmation code.
    • Thank you for signing up. To confirm this contact number, your code is 4343.
