When comes to the security of the content, the 2FA authentication plays an important role.
It’s crucial for companies to secure the content and to fight against fake accounts that are the core of the fake news/content on most of the platforms and the fuel of the SPAM business.
We all hate the fake accounts, but can we do something about the cost? It costs of fortune to enable 2fa in certain countries, perhaps $0.25/authentication. It becomes hard to support the cost when there is an attack on the platform and fraudsters take advantage of your 2fa protection to send SMS on their premium numbers with the sole purpose to generate revenue.
This practice is called OTP fraud. Telecom Wholesales Carriers are aware, Mobile Network Operators are aware, but they all love it because this is an important revenue stream and even if they would be able to stop this fraud (which is impossible currently), they will never do it.
Ok, then the question is, what can be done?
Well, Authenticalls, a telecom project based on the experience of 17 years (activity) and 244 years (cumulated staff experience), developed a service based on FLASHCALL that is delivering the authentication code in the phone number that is flash calling (beeping) the user. Better said, the user receives a missed call and the last 4-6 digits of the number that missed called them is the authentication code. A BRILLIANT idea that makes the service resilient to OTP fraud and saves content owners money necessary to develop new content.
Give Authenticalls a try, as you get 1000 free authentications followed by another 4000 for only 1 USD.
If people would use MFA/2FA or OTP and would not rely on credentials that are ever written down or memorized, these frauds would never happen. The accounts cannot be compromised with the 2FA enabled.
The best service available on the market and several times cheaper than the regular 2FA by SMS. #2fa #mfa #flashcall #content #apps
