Three Telcos Expected To Roll Out Mobile-Based Authentication Platform This Year

By end of 2017, consumers from Singtel, StarHub and M1 can use their mobile phone number as their e-identity for seamless login to various online content and services. The introduction of this authentication service via Mobile Connect lets Singaporeans do away with managing multiple passwords when accessing online services.

NETS is pleased to be part of this exciting initiative championed by our local telcos, in support of Singapore's Smart Nation agenda.

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.”
