How Mobile Identity Knows It's You
SMS: This method includes a unique onetime URL or onetime password received by SMS to prove that the user has access to the mobile device.
USSD: By this method, the MNO sends a push message to the mobile device, and the user responds to it by pressing on the suitable button (e.g. Okay, Cancel, etc.).
Why Use Mobile Identity?
Many popular online platforms require log in details, which becomes frustrating for the user having to keep track of log in information for any platform they use. With Mobile Identity, the user need not have multiple passwords and usernames, making log in much simpler and easier.
Some websites and applications offer the choice of logging in with users’ social media account details, causing many users to worry about the risk of their log in information being shared without their permission. Mobile Identity prevents users’ personal information from being accessible to the website or application unless the user provides their consent.
The recent hacking of twitter’s servers has left millions of twitter passwords compromised, leading to a panic among twitter users. Because the user’s phone is used for verification on Mobile Identity, users’ accounts are perfectly secure since the mobile number is used as their digital identity. In addition to the fact that the user is the only one in possession of the mobile phone, makes for added security. In the event of a stolen mobile device, users can easily contact their mobile phone operator, report the theft, and the service provider subsequently blocks access to any of the users’ accounts.
