Unlocking the potential

Mobile phone numbers are increasingly the most widely used unique user identifier. Mobile Connect leverages this ubiquity.

Mobile Connect means fewer forgotten passwords and easier registration. This translates into greater end-user engagement and fewer abandoned transactions. By simplifying the authentication and authorisation processes, Mobile Connect can help lower the cost of doing business. It also offers enhanced capabilities to authorise users based on verification of personal data factors, such as location. And in the near future, Mobile Connect will be able to drive greater consumer insights through consensual attribute sharing.
