Webinar: Owning Your 2FA With the New Twilio Authenticator SDK

On their own, passwords are a terrible way to protect your users and their data. Year after year the “Top 10 worst passwords” are embarrassingly simple, like “123456” and “qwerty.” Those passwords, probably reused on multiple accounts, are putting your users, and your organization, at risk.

Businesses looking to protect themselves and their customers are increasingly relying on improved two-factor authentication security in the form of security code generation or delivering push-to-approve authentication requests. These security methods have typically required users to download a third-party app like Authy. But now, developers can deliver secure and user-friendly authentication by embedding the very latest authentication technology directly into their own mobile apps, relieving the user of having to download anything additional.

With the Twilio Authenticator SDK, you can bring your users the same authentication methods that make Authy 2FA so secure and so popular, right inside any new, existing, or legacy mobile applications. And you can use it to secure any activity, including login, service access, money transfer authorization, contract approvals, you name it.

Watch this free on-demand webinar, in which B. Byrne, Head of Product, Account Security, Twilio, explores how easy it is to turn any existing app into an authenticator to create truly branded 2FA experiences.

Short on time? Here are the top takeaways:

  • Authenticator apps are much more secure than SMS-delivery of text message codes
  • App-based 2FA proves your user’s identity by verifying something they have in their possession
  • A self-branded (or embedded) authenticator app ensures that your users always get customized security-related messages directly from you
  • The Twilio Authenticator SDK allows you to implement Push Authentication and TOTP-based 2FA capabilities in your own Apple iOS and Google Android mobile apps
  • Self-branded authenticator apps can go beyond just securing the login: you can now secure high value activity in the application itself
