What Should You Do Now That Facebook Account Kit Is Closing Down?
Account Kit service in March 2020?
Many businesses use Account Kit to securely log in via 2FA or to verify new app registrations via One Time Passcodes (OTPs) sent over SMS—it’s a fast and easy solution to validate users and keep fraudsters away.
If your team is using Account Kit to securely log in or verify new customers, you’re going to need to find an alternative solution
Have no fear! Savvy users have switched from Account Kit to Nexmo Verify even before Facebook’s announcement. Verify is built by Vonage, who are experts in telecom and in PIN code delivery. We help developers and businesses maximize conversions to mobile networks in countries all over the world.
Here are some of the reasons Verify is the 2FA tool of choice for developers everywhere:
- Flexibility—customers have the ability to customize the sequence of channels used based on user preference.
- Compliance—Verify automatically localizes the sender ID and caller line identification (CLI) with local laws, ensuring the messages and calls with your valuable pin codes are not filtered by the telecom networks as spam—this means you have more genuine end-users making it through your registration process!
- Higher Conversions—Verify will automatically retry and failover to a different channel if a PIN code isn’t registered in the application.
In addition, users of Verify have found they can go to market faster thanks to our low/no code solutions; you don’t need any telecom or security expertise of your own, because you can borrow ours! Verify is incredibly simple to use: just send us a phone number and we’ll take care of the rest.
Verify is the ideal replacement option for Account Kit to help protect and keep your customers secure.
