Phone Takeover Risk

Mitigate account takeover fraud anywhere in the world*, with a frictionless customer experience

Brands make outbound calls and texts thousands of times a day. And quite often this includes authenticating the user’s identity on the other end of the line. Perhaps that involves sending a text message or calling the customer back on the number in their profile to ensure they are who they say they are. Seems straightforward enough, right?

That’s exactly what fraudsters want you to think. All it takes is a swapped out SIM card or call forwarding to be enabled without the real customer’s knowledge, and you could be exposing your company and your customers to fraud.

How do you provide a seamless customer experience, yet ensure you’re interacting with a real consumer and not a fraudster?

To combat the constantly changing methods and sophistication of identity thieves and fraudsters, businesses need new and innovative strategies that don’t impede on the ease and convenience of smartphone-based authentication via SMS text messaging that many consumers have grown accustomed to using. How do you flag fraudsters faster and ensure a frictionless experience for your genuine customers?
