Overview

Two-factor authentication dates back to the 1980’s with the introduction of the hardware token as an additional identifier. Whilst this security trend continued to grow throughout the 1980’s and 90’s, the widespread introduction of the mobile phone changed the industry forever and with it came token-free authentication. This white paper looks at the advantages of token-free authentication over hard tokens and the impact it has on user compliance.
