With the growing number of online transactions and e-commerce activities, website and app authentication has become a critical aspect of the user experience. Traditional methods like username and password or SMS-based One-Time Passwords (OTPs) can lead to frustration and difficulties for users, resulting in forgotten passwords or delayed access.
But what if there was a simpler, more secure, and cost-effective way to verify a user's phone number? Presenting a new solution - A Different Approach to Phone Verification.
This innovative solution makes use of the popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp, to securely verify a user's phone number. Instead of requiring a password or waiting for an SMS OTP, users can simply confirm their phone number through WhatsApp. This eliminates the need for passwords and OTPs, streamlining the verification process and making it more user-friendly.
To utilize this solution, users must have the WhatsApp app installed on their mobile device. The phone number can then be verified by confirming it through the app.
If the user is accessing the website or app from a desktop or laptop, a QR code will be displayed for the user to scan using their mobile camera. This will open the WhatsApp app, where the user can authorize the access and log in to the website or app in real-time.
For users accessing the website or app from a mobile device, a button saying "Login with WhatsApp" will be displayed. By clicking this button, the WhatsApp app will open on the device, and the user can authorize the login attempt by submitting a pre-filled message. After submitting the message, the user will be redirected to the website or app and logged in.
A Different Approach to Phone Verification is revolutionizing the world of website and app authentication. If you're a product developer, CTO, or simply seeking a more secure and user-friendly verification experience, give this solution a try today.
