Blogging about Blogs - VIP Access for Mobile getting noticed
Han Dong, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, User Authentication
Getting noticed is a hard thing. But when you do get recognized by adoring fans, it's like living the life of a beauty queen.
So you ask, what's the news?
We all know that VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Access for mobile has already been available for free on BlackberryÂ® smartphones and downloadable from the BlackBerry App World and the VeriSign Identity Protection Mobile Center sites for some time now.
What is new (or what you may have not noticed until now) is that with the VIP Access 3.0 release of September 2009, users can easily copy-n-paste the security code and credential ID into a mobile browser to complete VIP Access registration. Two-factor authentication has never been easier for the 'power' mobile-user.
So where can you use VIP Access for two-factor authentication to websites?
Simple. Register and use your VIP Access credential at participating VIP network member sites, such as eBay, PayPal, AOL, GEICO, or any participating VIP network site.
