If SMS OTP, email verification, or card readers are your current MFA options, it's time to upgrade to SIM-based auth and get the best of both worlds: strong security and great experience.
Knowledge factors such as username and password provide poor account protection in an age of rampant identity fraud.
Current MFA options force consumers into disjointed account journeys, causing high friction and low MFA adoption.
Simplifying authentication for the customer while strengthening security creates both a safer digital world and a delightful UX.
Phishing attackers rely on stealing knowledge remotely. tru.ID verifies only the unique SIM in the real user's device.
With no account credentials to intercept, SIM-based authentication with tru.ID is impervious to man-in-the-middle attacks.
The SIM card is based on cryptographic security that is difficult to clone. With tru.ID authentication, formidable mobile network security is now available to apps.
The pairing of the mobile phone number with its SIM provides stronger proof of possession than verifying the mobile number alone using weaker methods.
The combination of SIM authentication and the mobile phone number provides a proven, secure framework for verifying the mobile identity of customers.
Although users have become accustomed to 'security theatre', no one enjoys effortful account journeys or difficult transactions. Make life easier for your users with strong, yet silent auth.
Improve verification by removing unnecessary steps in the onboarding journey. Wherever you use the mobile number as a credential, you can simplify it by using SIM auth.
Replace expensive card readers or token for your most valuable customers, and use their smartphone as a strong security device.
Verify your users silently in the background every time they log in on a mobile device, or use push notifications to authorise desktop logins from your app.
Let us show you how tru.ID can transform your user account authentication. Get in touch.
tru.ID uses an API to verify the mobile number and SIM card with the mobile operator in real-time – so you can confirm the pairing of mobile identity, not just the phone number, providing strong device binding.
Unlike other MFA methods, tru.ID verification detects recent SIM change activity. If detected, step-up security can be implemented to reduce the risk of account takeovers from SIM swap fraud.
tru.ID is a modern API platform for mobile verification built to the OIDC standard. With a developer-friendly console and testing app, comprehensive tutorials for leading code stacks, and SDKs for Android and iOS apps, you'll have personalised support to get started.
