How Android O helps to improve SMS authentication for Apps
Apr 11, 2018
Read why OTPs are being changed for an increased range of useful benefits; for security in specific!
Android OREO is relatively on much smaller fraction of devices; but with the proceeding of time, as new developments across devices appear, the new operating system will be available almost everywhere on android eco system. When it comes to enhancing security aspects Android Oreo seems to take the lead by taking the process of authentification to a new further level.
With the relapse of Oreo, Google seems to change the way OTPs are sent, OTPs are unique codes which are used to prove a user's authentification. An OTP can be sent to a user via SMS, email or through an automated phone call.
It is factually very important to enter an OTP for a user to authenticate the use of an app.
Google's new system of OTP APIs will effectively channelize the way OTPs are sent. Under this, apps can send or request for an 11-digit code for OTP SMS quantification and will notify the android operating system to check out that OTP. When an authentification SMS arrives, the operating system will read that and send the code to the application. The SMS won't show up in the user's inbox, thereby making the overall process decluttered
This seems to be the new way of generating OTPs and channelizing the work. This reduces a user's effort of deviating from the existing apps and turning to authenticate.
This way Android Oreo can actually channelize the entire process of authentification. The entire method is simplistic and channelized in accordance with the standalone needs of the user. So, when it comes to working for high end security without having to affect the working system of a user, Oreo works well.
With state of the art security measures, and high end and sophisticate method of verifying OTPs; it can be reasonably concluded that SMS authentication apps are doing well. To learn more about new updates, and availing state of the art communication solutions, please click the website.
