Tablesome WordPress OTP Features
OTP Phone Number and Email Verification
When a new user registers on your WordPress site, you can send OTP SMS and OTP Email to their mobile number and email address to confirm that the information provided is correct.
OTP Two-Factor Authentication / Verification
OTP can be used in two-factor authentication as a second factor, when you are using the default password verification as the first factor. This use of OTP in multi-factor authentication can be used in any workflow that requires authentication.
Passwordless Login (Authentication)
Passwords are hard to remember and tough to maintain securely. People are discouraged from using the same password for multiple platforms and it’s hard to remember the password for every site or every app that you are registered with.
So users can login to your site with OTP as a single factor authentication.
Register Users With Only Phone Number
People nowadays prefer using phone numbers rather than emails to register on apps and websites because they are browsing on their mobile phones and do not want to receive promotional emails.
Visitors who register using OTP are encouraged to do it as it is faster rather than taking their time and filling out a lengthy registration form.
Long mandatory registration procedures may cause customers to abandon their shopping carts, especially throughout the checkout process.
You could use Tablesome to disable email login and make OTP login the default method.
OTP Verification for Password Reset
Besides registering and logging in to the WordPress site, you would also use Tablesome OTP verification when a user is resetting the password.
Integrating with SMS Gateways and Email Services
Tablesome can be integrated with various SMS gateways such as Twilio, Clickatell, ClickSend, and others, as well as email marketing services such as Mailchimp, SendGrid, and SendinBlue, using API credentials, to send OTP via SMS and Emails.
