Two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication ( 2FA ) provides not only your customers' accounts a higher degree of security - but you also protect your system against spam accounts and malicious robot logins.

Global blacklist for Spam numbers

When you integrate two-factor authentication from iP.1, you automatically gain access to our global blacklist consisting of virtual numbers, as well as mobile numbers used for, among other things, account registrations made by robots and other forms of malicious activity.

What is Two-factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication means an extra security step beyond your password to confirm that you are you. The function works in such a way that once you have entered the correct password, a verification code will be sent to you via SMS, which you then fill in to confirm your login.

Why should I use two-factor authentication?

Using only usernames and passwords to secure your online accounts is no longer an optimal security solution thanks to the recurring problem of data breaches, which is performed, among other things, to steal important information, such as credit card details, social security numbers and other sensitive data.

When 2FA is used in connection with login, it becomes much more difficult for unauthorized persons to access devices and digital services than when only one factor, such as a password is used. Protect your systems or your customers' accounts by integrating two-factor authentication (2FA) through iP.1's smart SMS API.

Verification during registrations

By using 2FA when registering new accounts, you can easily ensure that a person has entered the correct information by verifying the user's phone number. The code is sent as a text message to the specified number in no time.

Secure update of information

Ensure that your customer's data is not updated or erased invalid by invoking authentication via SMS. Our smart API makes it easy to connect two-factor authentication to commonly used security holes in any system.

Double the login protection

The safety of your users is an important factor, both for you as business and for your customers. Ensure that user accounts are secured by two-factor authentication when logging in from unknown devices or as an additional protection to prevent infringement.

Secure your system from bots

Many system developers today have major problems with so-called junk accounts created by bots. Using 2FA via SMS makes the creation of junk accounts difficult, as it is usually difficult to generate large amounts of mobile numbers.
