Helping developers navigate the complexities of multi-factor authentication

In today’s landscape of ever-evolving cyber threats, safeguarding access to information systems and accounts isn’t optional. For developers, striking the right balance between robust security measures and user-friendly experiences can be challenging. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) undeniably enhances security, but users perceive it as a hurdle, potentially disrupting their user flow. However, cumbersome MFA experiences are more often caused by inefficient or overly aggressive implementations. An effective plan that balances security with user experience is the key to a winning MFA strategy. 

Since MFA is here to stay and is increasingly becoming necessary on all accounts, developer communities have been finding creative ways of implementing MFA in a way that makes users feel safe without becoming frustrated. In fact, with the right solutions and approaches, MFA can fortify security without sacrificing user-friendly experiences.  

Telesign SMS Verify is a solution built to help developers quickly implement winning user MFA experience. SMS Verify delivers a plug-and-play framework, empowering developers to painlessly integrate MFA workflows that improve end-user security without the typical implementation overhead. 

With SMS Verify, developers can quickly build, integrate, and scale MFA workflows that enhance overall user security by reliably sending time-based, one-time SMS passcodes (OTPs) around the world.
