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. Mobile Connect has been launched by more than 70 operators around the world. 

  • 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 securely verifying the phone number of the user through the mobile network. 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. 

Those operators wishing to implement Mobile Connect can refer to the document “Mobile Connect Deployment Guide” to understand the solution proposition and guide them through the documents and presentations that can help with the Mobile Connect deployment.
