Mobile Connect: a unique password and 2 awards at the Mobile World Congress
Mobile Connect simplifies digital activities for customers. This interoperable solution, designed by operators within the GSM Association*, simplifies each online authentication, making it safer than ever.
In specific terms, each customer has a unique secure password to access a site. This is valid for all Internet services that have adopted this solution.
This innovation has earned Orange Spain, Telefonica and Vodafone Spain, the first operators to offer this feature to their customers in Spain, two awards at the Mobile World Congress 2016, in the “Mobile Connect Award for Authentication and Identity” category and in the “Outstanding Innovation for the Connected Life” category.
Mobile Connect is now booming. Launched by Orange in Spain on February 2 and in Morocco on the 23rd, it will soon be available to customers in other countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
How does it work?
- The unique identifier is based on the combination of the customer's mobile number and a 4-digit password.
- To ensure the highest level of security possible, the password is stored only in encrypted form on the mobile’s SIM card.
