There is one more route ( SendOTP route) which is for SendOTP. if you are looking for OTP services, we would suggest you opt for SendOTP because it has various advantages over the traditional transactional route:
- Voice backup for failed SMS OTP, on our cost.
- We generate the OTP on your behalf, we send and we verify. You just have to call the APIs.
- The backend algorithm makes sure that the OTP is processed from our end in less than half-a-second.
P.S. We have upgraded mobile verification with SendOTP 2.0- faster, better performance, enhanced security. To know about SendOTP 2.0 contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
