How It Works
The following is one example of how to use the product to verify the identity of a user creating a new account.
The user registers for an account on your website and enters their phone number.
TeleSign checks the type of phone number provided and determines it is a landline.
TeleSign also identifies the country the user resides in and sends an OTP voice message to the number provided in the language appropriate for the user.
The user enters the correct passcode on the login screen.
The passcode entered is the same code that was sent to the user, so the user is verified.
The user is then able to complete the account registration process.
