The new standard in digital authentication.
The Mobile Connect App Challenge
The Mobile Connect App Challenge starting October 26th and finishing February 6th, is an online contest that will allow participants to build an app that will change the way we connect with different apps and websites using Mobile Connect technology.
Mobile Connect is a fast and simple way for users to log into your application. There is no need for them to remember a password, they simply respond to a prompt on their phone. This means more people get in to your service first time, fewer abandoned transactions and more repeat business for your services.
How does it work?
Over 2 billion subscribers from operators around the world are now Mobile Connect ready – see how it works and what to do to make it part of your service
