Mobile Connect

Mobile Connect is a secure universal identity service offering a simple, trusted way for mobile users to share sensitive data, and undertake transactions with confidence. Enabling authentication, authorisation and secure identity verification, swiftly, globally, and cost-effectively. 

  • Simple By matching the end user to their mobile phone number, Mobile Connect empowers the user to confirm his/her identity online, and authorise transactions such as payments, sharing only the personal data that’s essential for completing the transaction.
  • Secure The Mobile Connect product portfolio is delivered through the Mobile Connect API using the OpenID Connect standard. The service provider’s application invokes the API to request the desired functionality from an operator; examples are authenticating an end user or requesting an end user to authorise a transaction. The operator engages with the end user to fulfil the request and provide a response back to the application.
  • Seamless The Mobile Connect API’s unique federated architecture works seamlessly with multiple operators across the globe.

Since its inception in 2014, the Identity Programme has grown into a major business with its flagship product Mobile Connect having been launched by more than 70 operators around the world, reaching over 4 million end users.
