IPification is leveraging mobile operator’s network full capabilities. Unlike other mobile authentication methods namely header enrichment 2FA, IPification does not require any private information from the users to complete the process (such as name, mobile phone number, user name or password), nor does it requires any action performed by a user to activate and complete the identity verification (zero-tap login). It ensures the security of IPification while elevating user experience to the highest level.
For service providers, IPification can strengthen user security as the technology is built upon the strictest protocols. Since a Mobile ID generated from various SIM cards, devices, and unique network data cannot be manipulated, hacked nor altered, the deployment of IPification will enhance the registration flow, improve login experience, and offer maximum protection against fraudulent activities.
From April this year, IPification will be added to CTM Buddy, the customer service app of CTM to provide an additional and more secure user authentication option. With this revolutionary mobile authentication technology, CTM is looking forward to offering mobile service subscribers a brand new and seamless login experience and protecting their personal data at the same time.
