How it works
Make sure a real person is registering for your app
1
The user enters his/her phone number
As part of the registration process, the app asks the user to enter his/her number.
2
Nexmo Verify sends a code
Nexmo Verify sends a text message containing an authentication code to that number. If the user is on a landline, Nexmo automatically makes a phone call and delivers the code via text-to-speech.
3
The user enters the authentication code
The user receives the message and enters the authentication code in the installer screen.
4
Nexmo Verify validates the code
Behind the scenes, Nexmo Verify confirms that the user has entered the correct code. If so, the app installation can continue.
5
And weeds out the botnets and spammers
If the code is incorrect, Nexmo Verify can prompt the user to re-try. If the correct code is never entered, your app can cancel the installation process.
