Sending validation codes
Message with access code or verification. The objective is to validate a mobile phone and authenticate the person in processes or restricted access.
The content of this type of messages is very simple, it must include a numerical code if possible. It is advisable that the code appears in the first words of the message so that it is visible in any notification and the user does not necessarily have to access the SMS message inbox.
The purpose of this message is for the user to enter the code that contains the message in an application. This action can be used to validate a mobile phone or to verify the authorship of an action or access. Sending validation codes through SMS is an important security tool for any website and to protect its own users.
It is common now that many mobile apps ask for the personal data of the mobile phone and that this data is verified by a code sent by SMS. This validation ensures that the user has access to the device and generates an extra trust in the user.
You can also send a code via SMS to access control panels or any important action such as financial transactions. This way the identity is not spoofed and the user is really doing the action or access.
This type of message can be applied to any application or software that wants to verify its users, authenticate them or validate the most committed actions.
