Why Mobile Connect How it works Support

WHY MOBILE CONNECT

Mobile Connect is the new, simple and safe way to log-in – wherever you see this logo.

Simple

Just think how many websites and apps you can’t access without setting up different user names and passwords. It’s frustrating that the more we use the internet, the more log-in details we have to remember.

With Mobile Connect, there’s no need for multiple passwords or user names so log- in is simpler.

Private

Sometimes, we avoid the problem of remembering usernames and passwords by logging in with our social network log-in details. However, many people are increasingly worried about how much personal information such log-ins need and share and whether their personal information will be used without permission.

With Mobile Connect, no personal information is made available to the website or app you’re logging into without your consent.

Secure

Recent high profile online security breaches have resulted in people’s passwords falling into the wrong hands. Because your mobile device is used for verification, it is more difficult to compromise your Mobile Connect account.

Mobile Connect is safer and more secure because you are using your mobile number as your digital identity, and verifying it through the device which you always have with you, your mobile phone. Your request to login works through your mobile device.

HOW MOBILE CONNECT WORKS

Mobile Connect verifies you through the device that you always keep with you - your mobile phone. Safer log-in is literally in your hands.

Easy to sign up

You can set up your Mobile Connect account with your mobile network operator in two ways:

Just click on the Mobile Connect logo when you see it as an option on a website or application

OR

Sign up directly with your mobile operator. Most likely you will receive an invitation via a text message, an email or from their customer care portal.

Easy to use

1. Once registered, simply click on the Mobile Connect logo whenever you see it as a log-in option.

2. A message will then pop up on your mobile phone. This may ask you to click a simple OK or, if the site or app requires a higher level of security, you may need to enter a personal code such as a PIN.

3. As soon as you respond to this prompt, Mobile Connect verifies you and you’re logged in to website or application.
