Transform account journeys from dull to delightful with silent verification. There's no SMS OTP to send, no magic links to distract. You can even ditch the password. Verify mobile phone numbers directly with the authentication systems of mobile carriers.
By connecting your app directly to mobile carrier authentication, tru.ID helps you remove unnecessary steps in a typical account verification journey - at least 3 screens and 5 steps. There's no need for SMS OTP or magic links. Just instant, silent verification in the background.
With tru.ID, you don't just verify a mobile number, like an SMS OTP does, tru.ID verifies a mobile identity - the pairing of a mobile number with the SIM. This way you can be sure that you only deal with real accounts, not virtual numbers.
The tru.ID checks are performed directly with a user's mobile network operator. Network-level authentication was only available to carriers themselves, or to enterprise. Now it's an API any developer can use to verify users' mobile identity.
Strong customer authentication doesn't have to be cumbersome. tru.ID uses SIM-based authentication to verify mobile identity. You won't need to clutter customer journeys with SMS OTP, email confirmation or other auth to prove possession.
Whatever language your app is built with, or whichever existing 2FA solution you're using, tru.ID has all the documentation and building blocks you need to integrate.
SMS passcodes don’t truly prove device possession and can be intercepted. Account takeover fraud often involves SMS OTP that passes for verification, but isn't really. tru.ID is the stronger SIM-based authentication alternative.
Using the mobile number as your primary account credential is now a real alternative to old-fashioned username/email + password, or verification experiences that force users into context switching between apps or screens.
The pairing of the mobile phone number with the SIM identity is a combination that is difficult to copy and near impossible to tamper with. Therefore, when using tru.ID to verify mobile numbers, you'll benefit from the strongest possession factor for auth.
By integrating directly with mobile network authentication, you open up a world of account possibilities. One of them - going passwordless without compromising security. No more 'forgotten password' support overheads, or a frustrating customer experience.
Instant PhoneCheck is the only verification product that works entirely in-band and is turnkey, not a series of disjointed steps. All other means of verification send the user out of your app, leading to abandonment and drop-offs. With Instant PhoneCheck the user never leaves your app, and the entire verification happens seamlessly. Fewer distractions, better security and a better experience.
Instant PhoneCheck verifies the mobile data session created by a user's SIM card. It's a check of possession that can't be hacked, so spammers can't create fake accounts and there is no information to phish from unsuspecting users. Be certain the user of your app has the phone number you expect. Say goodbye to fraud and fake accounts, for good.
Instant PhoneCheck whizzes your users through phone verification so you can convert every intentful user. Since there's no action necessary, you can create amazing onboarding experiences. Whether you're building a new app and want a blazingly fast, passwordless login, or considering adding 2FA to your app and worried about introducing friction — add security, not friction.
