Trust your customer from onboarding

Ensure any authentication steps, such as one-time passcodes, are being sent to the mobile owner, not to a fraudster.

Reliable validation and fraud prevention

A mobile number is personal to an individual and often stays with a person longer than their address. Knowing that a person is the owner of that number is a robust way of validating an identity and preventing synthetic identity fraud.

In addition, mobiles also provide a reliable data source to match Millennials as they turn 18 - ensuring they can access goods and services digitally.
