How does it work?

  • The Service Provider requests the operator for the user’s phone number using the Mobile Connect OIDC API.
  • The Operator obtains the user’s consent via their mobile so they can share the information – the MSISDN.
  • If the user consents the operator will provide the user’s MSISDN to the Service Provider who requested it.

How is it used?

  • Provides a phone number allowing contact with the user when finalising an eCommerce transaction.
  • Automatic filling on online forms, avoiding potential data entry errors.
  • Enables a Service Provider to identify that the user has an existing account via MSISDN indexing.
  • Reduction of fraud by confirming the user’s telephone number.

Mobile Identity benefits and features

  • Service Providers may verify user’s phone numbers.
  • Protects privacy by obtaining consent before any information is shared.
  • The method of interaction does not affect the authentication experience of the user. Works identically on tablet, PC, mobile devices and so on.
  • Can be initiated by the user on their own browser when entering the SP’s website. Alternatively, the SP can run it in the background making it available for many different use cases.
  • Single contract to access the service and a single open standard API (OIDC) from multiple operators worldwide.
