The Mobile Connect Authorisation offers contextual authentication with a Yes/No option for users to authorise requests on their mobile phone.

 

Mobile Connect Authorise
Mobile Connect Authorise allows the end user to authorise any request from service provider directly from their mobile phone. The service provider provides details specific to their request in the Mobile Connect API, which is displayed on the end user’s mobile phone for approval. The end user approves or rejects the request which is relayed to the service provider in the API response.

Mobile Connect Authorise Plus
Mobile Connect Authorise Plus also allows the end user to authorise any request from service provider directly from their mobile phone. Mobile Connect Authorise Plus, in addition, requires the end user to authenticate first by entering the Mobile Connect PIN prior to authorising the request.
