Considering our growing dependence on mobile devices, it is essential for businesses to recognise the potential dangers linked to fraudulent activities. Mobile phones have become an indispensable aspect of our daily lives, storing vast amounts of personal and financial data that cybercriminals can exploit.
As technology progresses, fraudsters also develop more sophisticated methods, underscoring the urgency for companies to adjust their security protocols accordingly. Neglecting the vulnerabilities presented by mobile phones may expose both clients and businesses to a range of fraudulent schemes, emphasising the necessity for comprehensive approaches to protect against this ever-evolving landscape of threats.
With Datanamix, a business can minimise fraud and risk on a mobile number with Phone ID and Score.
Here’s how Phone ID and Score checks can assist your business:
With the Phone ID service, you can verify which carrier the mobile number belongs to. Not only that, but you will also be able to see if the number has gone from one provider to another. This means you will be able to identify when the number went from Vodacom to MTN to CellC.
SIM Swap Score
Many times, the most significant fraud takes place when people are in the process of a SIM swap. This is because the current number can still be active while a person waits for their new number to kick in. This is where fraudsters can get OTPs for online transactions, thus impacting the viability of two factor authentication (OTP).
The SIM swap score report will provide you with information on when last a person did a SIM swap, including the date and time, allowing your business to see if a number should be blocked or if it is
The Phone ID and Score report will also provide your business with a contact check, meaning you can see the name of the person that the number belongs to. This is a strong authentication method and can assist in minimising fraud with mobile numbers as much as possible.
This is available globally in over 230 countries, providing your business with peace of mind when onboarding new clients.
