Just One Number Away

To enable the use of the PIN over SMS service, the data interface between the issuing bank and AUSTRIACARD has to be extended with the mobile telephone number of the cardholder. This process is simple and time-efficient, while at the same time guaranteeing data protection across all stages.

AUSTRIACARD’s data management system is processing all relevant information necessary to enable secure PIN value distribution via the SMS gateway directly to cardholders. This procedure saves money and time for the PIN issuer.
