With the increase in technology advancement, it has become very easy for hackers to gain access to any website. There are countless victims of hacking who are in search of better ways to protect their online security. Web security is highly important because when a website is hacked, your business will lose a lot of customers. This is because the customers will feel not feel that your website is trustworthy.
When it comes to web security, two-factor authentication has been around for a while. With the increase in password stealing and hackers gaining access to the private information of registered users on a website, it has become essential for a business to imply that extra layer of security.
The efforts you put in to secure your business, it will ensure that your customers keep returning to your website or application.
Without website security, your online business does not have the purpose of existence. Poor website security will make you lose your money as well as business reputation. You can go for phone verification API which is the best and the easiest way to ensure that your website is safe. When a user tries to login into his account, an SMS will be sent on his/her registered mobile number. This is called SMS phone verification.
The user will only be able to gain access to their account only after they enter the code or OTP ( one time password) this will make sure that only the authorized person is gaining access to the information. It is very important to take effective security measures when it comes to your website.
The information on hacking is available almost everywhere on the internet. Thus, it is very easy for anyone to hack a website which is poorly coded or does not have proper security. It is not necessary that hackers only target the big fish. They also go for smaller online platforms to steal stored credit card information.
You might be well aware of the fact that there are very few chances to make a good impression. When a potential customer visits your website and catches a virus or malfunction that does not leave a good impression of your business. Thus, that customer will not be returning anytime soon. After hackers break into your website, many search engines will take that into notice. This will block any new potential customers from finding your website.
Opting for two-factor authentication will make sure that no repetitive users are registering themselves under the same registered mobile number. This avoids any kind of bulk account creation. Two-factor authentication will also help in increasing increase the productivity and flexibility of your business.
With 2FA even your employees can securely access the online data. When your business is secure, it saves the downtime and improves work quality. It is also a great way to reset passwords as well. When a user forgets his/her password, and when they request to reset it- a link or a verification code is sent on their registered number. This will help the user to rest their password with the help of the code.
Two-factor authentication is not only useful for websites but also for various business applications. Almost every big shot application uses two-factor authentication these days. This adds an additional layer of security to the application resulting in the enhanced security of the website or application.
