Digital service providers and their users are increasingly being targeted by fraudsters who seek to extract money or other forms of stored value from accounts. Boku and Digi are ensuring that Malaysians are protected from these forms of fraud.
Boku’s Phone Number Verification (Authenticate) service will verify mobile number possession directly on the device by using its built-in connectivity to the mobile operators’ wireless network.
