An API that delivers patented phone-based verification and two-factor authentication (2FA) using a one-time passcode (OTP) sent over voice message in the event the end-user chooses the voice method, provides a landline or is not authorized to receive SMS messages in a specific country.
As part of Twilio's account security offerings, the Twilio Verify API makes it simple to add phone verification to your web application. It supports codes sent via voice and SMS.
Efficiently generate and manage temporary passwords with one time password APIs.
A one time password (OTP) application programming interface (API) is a RESTful web service. It enables developers to integrate into their projects the functionality to generate single-use, temporary passwords.
An OTP API utilizes the POST request method to make API calls. Developers embed endpoints into their client applications or websites. Endpoints connect the requests to the data resources provided by the API. Responses are returned in standard JSON formatting.
Developers that want to add another layer of security to their websites or client applications will find APIs for OTP’s helpful.
Businesses will also benefit from using one time password APIs. Some examples are online banking institutions, legal organizations, and other entities that handle sensitive information.
Developers can add the one time password functionality without having to learn, write, test, and debug the code. A one time password API enables developers to expedite the launching of their projects.
OTP APIs give business applications an extra layer of security with strong authentication. This is in high contrast to static passwords which systems vulnerable to unauthorized access to sensitive data.
An API for one time passwords may come in handy when a customer or employee forgets their password too. If the lost password falls into the wrong hands, a one time password security protocol can prevent an imposter from logging onto the account.
Developers can count on building projects with extra security measures that their clients will appreciate.
Businesses can expect to take advantage of the security benefits of a one time password API. The interface generates random numbers that are challenging to guess. Even if a weak user password is compromised, and OTP will help prevent unauthorized access.
RapidAPI’s Marketplace lists several free and freemium APIs for one time password generation. Two free OTP APIs are D7 Verify by D7admin and ShoutOUT OTP by ShoutOUT. Both APIs allow users to send one time passwords to mobile numbers. They also feature unlimited requests.
All OTP APIs are supported and made available in multiple developer programming languages and SDKs including:
