Phone number verification widget

- 5 MIN READ - 03 Feb 2016

We’re very excited to bring you our latest upgrade to Messente’s 2-step verification products - the phone number verification widget. It’s a tool which makes user authentication and phone number verification completely plug and play for developers.

So why did we build the widget? Here’s the deal.

Messente delivers millions of authentication PIN codes and one time passwords every month and we talk to a lot of companies looking to upgrade their user security.

Most sites and web applications using 2-step verification today have had to build the verification process from scratch using an SMS messaging API to deliver the PIN codes. The reason for this is that most 2-step verification products offered for businesses today are simply one-way SMS messaging services packaged as authentication products.

On the other hand there are many businesses willing to set up 2-step verification but they don’t have the development resource to build one themselves. The verification widget is a tool for all of these companies as it offering the missing tool from a plug and play solution.

So now developers have the following options to choose from:


There is literally nothing left for you to build :)

Last week, Lauri wrote a good piece about keeping things real, because businesses have simple business models at their core. As one of our values, simplicity has led Messente to build a reliable and powerful SMS API and user authentication API for businesses and brands to communicate with their customers globally.

While we pride ourselves in doing global A2P SMS and 2FA very well, one of our sister companies, 1oT, uses a similar methodology of simplicity to do global internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity really well.

A note on keeping things real

17 Apr 2018

Over the years, I've had the good fortune of talking to and doing business with many entrepreneurs and CEOs from a variety of industries. Some are first-time founders of small startups, while others are amazingly experienced serial entrepreneurs. Many of them are extremely successful in what they do.

So naturally, while listening to them talk about their businesses, I've always tried to spot any fundamental takeaways –the small drops of universal business advice distilled from those hundreds of conversations.

And it seems to me that a lot of the most profound business truths seem to point to a direction that I would call, "keeping it real.”

10 Apr 2018

Over the last few months we’ve been setting the direction of our Omnichannel messaging API and our development team has started working on it. Considering transparency, we wanted to share the progress we’ve made on the API and give our clients something to look forward to, as well as helping clients prepare their systems for the next generation of our A2P messaging API.
