Mobile phone numbers have long become a part of our identity. At the same time, many online and mobile services are delivering one-time passwords over SMS for the purpose of account registration or two-factor authentication. This has created opportunities for fraudsters who are exploiting insufficiently secured services for their own gain.
NetNumber’s Porting History (PH) provides an efficient and effective mechanism to determine if a phone number has been ported from one service provider to another or if it has been ported between service types (fixed to mobile). This information can be used to help prevent fraud.
