As Mr. Raymond Mah (Manager, Trusted Solutions, Innovation Development) at MACROKIOSK explains, “Two-factor authentication such as one-time password acts as a second line of defence when dealing with fraud attack. With 2FA implemented, it is harder for an attacker to penetrate the system and in return, it deters the possibility of an attack.”
OTP is proven useful and effective in preventing identity theft as the unique generated secure PIN sent to your digital device is only valid for a single use. Think of it as having a combination lock that requires a new set of codes every time you want to unlock it.
Who needs OTP?
Everyone that embraces the digital engagements. OTP is especially important for businesses with an online platform or individuals with an online account. It is typically used for new account creations or to verify/authenticate digital identities. Major digital/online platforms providers, such as e-commerce, payments, social medias and content providers are incorporating OTP as part of its security measures.
How do I generate OTP?
There are several ways to generate OTP. One of them is a hardware device known as OTP token which can generate one-time passwords, where the authentication server will validate the one-time password together with a username and password. This method may often be an expensive and rigid solution to deploy.
