2FA SMS Twilio in Wix

2FA SMS Twilio in Wix

Velo Code Solution

SMS two-factor authentication verifies a user's identification by texting a security code to their phone. The user then inserts the code into the website or programme they're attempting to access.
Pros:
Simplicity. A confirmation code is sent to a user's cell phone through SMS 2FA. Simply input the code to have access to your data.
Accessibility and speed. SMS 2FA sends a one-time password (OTP) to a user's mobile whenever suspicious behaviour happens, allowing only the user with that device to log in and verify that their account hasn't been hacked. SMS 2FA is a rapid technique to verify a user's identity.
Popular. Because SMS 2FA is the earliest type of two-factor authentication, it has become a widely used security mechanism.
Cons
Requirements for a phone number. Users must give their phone numbers to a third party in order to utilise SMS 2FA. Some people are concerned about their privacy, personal security, and being targeted for advertising as a result of this.
Network. A phone that can receive SMS messages is required for SMS 2FA. Users may not be able to get their security code if their phone is lost or destroyed, or if they are unable to connect to their network.
