Verify Silent Network Auth Headspin Testing Guide

In order to test Verify Silent Network Auth (SNA), the mobile number used must be on one of our supported carriers within a supported country. If you do not have access to a supported mobile number, you can use a third-party mobile device testing service like Headspin to obtain one and proceed with testing.



  • Uninstall the app from the Headspin device once you finish testing to prevent leaks of your product. Headspin devices are available to all their customers.
