The solution is both seamless and secure.
Mobile Authentication will reduce user friction while providing the best possible defence against the threat of ATOs.

- For password resets and other high risk activities
- For account registration
Digital Identity Proofing
Digital Identity Proofing will verify a user’s name, address, and most importantly – phone number. Why is phone number important? Because synthetic IDs used to impersonate real identities will rely on an impostrous phone number. And unlike home addresses, physical id documents, or even biometrics, once phone number ownership is verified, a secondary phone number possession check can be confirmed remotely and immediately without any prior set up. This enables a 2-factor id verification process that is both simple and instantaneous.
- Online communities and marketplaces that value trust and safety
- Financial institutions and online businesses that want a simple way to screen users before expensive KYC verifications
Digital Identity Proofing offers a low cost, preliminary measure for screening out dubious customer accounts.
Over 70% of SMS OTP compromises are the result of stolen OTPs
Mobile Signals will help identify suspicious phone numbers that may either be fraudulent or compromised. Has the phone number recently been reassigned to a new SIM? Is the phone number a virtual number or a forwarded number? By checking various real time phone number characteristics, Boku can help you determine whether any further security measures should be undertaken before allowing the phone number to be used.
If you are any business that uses phone numbers as a form of unique ID to:
- Create new accounts
- Deliver sensitive information
- Authenticate the user
Mobile Signals are there to help you determine whether the number is sufficiently reliable and trustworthy before using it.
