Overview

SMS Authentication Logo

The SMSAuthentication Package is a YetaWF package that supports two-step verification while logging into a YetaWF site. It can be enabled by individual users to make their account on the YetaWF site more secure. After logging in, a PIN code has to be entered to complete signing on to the site.

The PIN code is obtained from a text message (SMS) sent to the user's registered phone number. Without this PIN code, the user cannot log into the YetaWF site, resulting in additional security. Enable 2-step verification to protect your account from hijacking by adding another layer of security. With 2-step verification signing in will require a code sent to your registered phone number in addition to your account password.

SMS Authentication

SMS Authentication uses an SMS service provider (Twilio Package, Nexmo Package) to delivery text messages. The Twilio Package or Nexmo Package are required to delivery text messages. A Twilio or Nexmo account is required to use SMS Authentication with these services.

The SMSAuthentication Package can be purchased in the YetaWF Store.
