IPification is continuing to expand its international footprint. The phone verification specialist has signed a new partnership with Telkomsel, which is the largest mobile network operator in Indonesia.
The arrangement will allow app developers in Indonesia to integrate IPification into their own apps to speed up mobile onboarding and identity verification. The IPification solution analyzes the phone being used to sign up for an account, and cross-references the information on that phone with mobile records and IP addresses to ensure that the name on an account matches the name of the phone’s registered owner.
If everything checks out, the identity verification process can be completed with only a single click. That, in turn, reduces abandonment rates and supports a faster and more frictionless end user experience.
“I am proud to announce that a company as big as Telkomsel is joining the IPification camp of user-centric mobile identity experiences,” said IPification CEO Stefan Kostic. “With this partnership, Telkomsel is enabling over 150 million subscribers to gain access to frictionless, yet bank-grade secure mobile authentication and user verification solutions.”
“Hopefully this strategic collaboration can have a positive impact on creating civilized digital security for all levels of society,” added Telkomsel Enterprise Business Management VP Hanang Setiohargo.
IPification has entered into a growing number of markets in the past few years. The company offers coverage for 98 percent of the mobile market in Cambodia, and it has also made inroads in several countries in Europe. Most notably, the company debuted in France earlier this year, after launching in the UK in 2021.
According to IPification, its phone-based verification solution is a secure alternative to SMS passcodes, which have been identified as one of the more vulnerable forms of two-factor authentication. The company introduced an IM-based authentication option at the beginning of the year.
