TeleSign Rolls Out iOS User Verification SDK

Los Angeles-based TeleSign announced on Thursday that it has launched a new software development kit (SDK) for iOS, which allows mobile app developers to streamline account verification and identity assurance. TeleSign said its App Verify for iOS SDK helps assist with increasing conversions and providing identity assurance, embedding a phone number verification within those mobile apps. TeleSign's SDK helps automate phone number verification, can be branded to a mobile app, and also includes security features to help keep hackers from reverse engineering the SDK for bulk account creation. TeleSign did not say how much it costs to embed those features into mobile apps using the SDK.
