(26 January 2022 – HONG KONG) The one-click, passwordless mobile identity solutions provider IPification has just deployed its phone verification solution within U-Pay, the leading mobile payments services provider in Cambodia. U-Pay is the first e-Wallet company to implement bank-grade secure IPification solutions in the country.

Licensed by the National Bank of Cambodia to become the local payment service institution in December 2020, U-Pay aims to provide convenient mobile payment services. Users can transact anytime, anywhere, and in any way, including mobile top-up, bill payment, and transferring money.

IPification provides a variety of one-click, passwordless mobile identity solutions that include possession verification and fraud prevention.
