Mobile connect

Connect with Orange customers and authenticate users quickly and securely without the need for user names and passwords

The digital age has led to an unprecedented level of access to information and services. However, access to such information and services often requires the user to sign-up to websites and applications, resulting in the need to remember user names and passwords, there is a need for a secure solution that bypasses the issue of forgetting passwords, thereby keeping your customers engaged.

Mobile Connect is a secure universal log-in solution. Simply by matching the user to their mobile phone, Mobile Connect allows them to log-in to websites and applications quickly without the need to remember passwords and usernames. It’s safe, secure and no personal information is shared without permission. As the Mobile Connect Jordan Limited API is built on Mobile Connect technology, they will be able to connect your website using their mobile phone, and won't have to memorize login and password anymore. It’s easier, more secure and is now available through mobile network operators worldwide.

How does it work ?

User logs in via their mobile phone number and is authenticated by clicking OK (LoA2). If extra security is needed, a PIN code (LoA3) can be requested on the mobile phone to authenticate the user.

Open standards to integrate easily

Mobile Connect uses the OpenID Connect standard and authentication is performed by a mobile phone. Mobile Connect has been standardized by the GSMA and is provided by each individual mobile network operator. All APIs are based on RESTful API principles. Each API is provided through 'Network Services' working over HTTPS protocol, working the same way on mobile applications and websites. To simplify the integration of Mobile Connect with your service, we are offering complete set of tools, documentation and SDK.

    Mobile Connect uses two principal APIs:

  • The Discovery API enables your application to recognise the mobile network being used and whether Mobile Connect is available for that network. It also provides your application with the various URLs for the Mobile Connect service corresponding with the user's network.
  • The Mobile Connect API allows the user to authenticate themselves using their Mobile Connect user account.
