Telcos Unveil Mobile Connect Service Providers

Singtel, StarHub and M1 has unveiled the first group of service providers that will offer Mobile Connect, a digital identity solution that allows consumers to log in to various online services by using just their mobile numbers. The Mobile Connect-supported online services are expected to be available later this year.

For Singapore mobile users, they can look forward to make mobile purchases via eNETS without having to register for or remember their usernames and passwords.

Alvin Seck, Deputy Head of Business Services, NETS commented: “Mobile Connect makes it easier for consumers to pay on their mobile devices by authenticating, authorising or identifying themselves securely with a single log-in solution on our eNETS online payment gateway. The enhanced security and convenience will translate into higher online transactions for our eNETS merchants. For NETS, this is one step ahead in fostering greater seamless transactions for online and mobile payments in the digital world we are living in.”
