Mobile Commerce News tells us about Verizon’s authentication option based on QR codes: “To take advantage of the use of QRcode based authentication, customers will first need to enroll with Verizon for a Universal ID from a webpage. Once registration is complete, an app can be downloaded which will provide scanning for a dynamically generated quick response code that is displayed on a login page. When that barcode has been read, Verizon confirms the user’s identity, allowing him or her to be authenticated.”
