Advantages

  • Efficient account registration: Users can register an account with a mobile phone number. Therefore, they can log in to the app by using their mobile phone number. This is more efficient than using an email address.
  • User identity verified: During SMS verification, a user enters the verification code returned to the specified mobile phone number. This can verify the user’s identity with the mobile phone number and prevent fake account creation.
  • Simplified password resetting: If the account password is forgotten or missing, the user can enter an SMS verification code received by the mobile phone number to verify the user identity and reset the password.
