The digital identity market is rapidly evolving and adapting to meet the needs of consumers. With a focus on user experience and commerce, as well as data protection, privacy, and inclusive, the industry will have significant growth in the coming years. One of the biggest changes we can expect in 2024 is the rise of silent authentication, which promises to revolutionize the way we interact with technology.

What is Silent Authentication?

Mobile silent authentication is a friction less authentication that uses live mobile network data to confirm that the device used by a customer is the same one that you expect it to be, with no requirement for an SMS One Time Password or user intervention. The idea behind silent authentication is to provide a seamless, friction less experience for users, without sacrificing security.

Why is it Important to be Prepared for Silent Authentication?

Silent authentication is the future of digital identity, and businesses that don’t prepare for it now will be left behind. Here are a few reasons why you should be paying attention to this trend:

Better User Experience: With silent authentication, users won’t have to remember passwords, or enter them repeatedly. This will improve the overall experience of using technology, making it faster, more convenient, and more secure.

Lower Cybersecurity Risks: Passwords are one of the most common causes of data breaches. With silent authentication, you can eliminate the need for passwords, which will reduce the risk of cyber attacks.

Increased Adoption: As consumers become more familiar with mobile authentication, it’s likely that they will begin to demand it from more and more services. By being prepared for silent authentication now, you can ensure that you’re ahead of the curve, and able to meet the needs of your customers.

Improved Regulatory Compliance: Many countries are enacting online privacy and data protection laws, which will require businesses to implement stronger authentication methods. By preparing for silent authentication, you can ensure that you’re meeting these requirements, and avoiding any penalties or legal issues.

How to Prepare for Silent Authentication

If you want to be prepared for silent authentication, there are a few steps you can take now:

Invest in Technology

Start exploring the different forms of authentication and look for solutions that can be easily integrated into your existing systems, and consider the cost, accuracy, and ease of use of each option.

Educate Your Customers

Make sure that your customers are aware of the benefits of silent authentication and educate them on how to use it. Provide clear instructions and be prepared to answer any questions or concerns they may have.

Develop Strong Security Protocols

Make sure that you have strong security protocols in place to protect the data you collect. This includes encryption, secure storage, and regular backups.

Stay Up-to-Date on Regulations

Keep an eye on changes in privacy and data protection laws, and be prepared to adapt your policies and procedures as needed.

In conclusion, silent authentication is the future of digital identity, and businesses that want to remain competitive need to prepare for it now. By investing in technology, educating your customers, and developing strong security protocols, you can ensure that you’re ready to take advantage of this exciting new trend.
