Many websites want to verify the phone number to verify the identity of the user. For this purpose, an SMS is usually sent to the smartphone of the concerned person. The message contains a code that must be entered on the page. Entering the OTP manually is considered annoying by many users. That’s why Google implemented an innovation in its browser.
Chrome 93 accesses SMS with one-time passwords from the user’s smartphone
Website must support WebOTP API
Like a search engine company on their site Developer Blog He writes, the new version 93 of Chrome brings with it support for OTPs via SMS. In order to be able to use the feature, the website must support the WebOTP interface. So far, the API can only be supported by devices that can also allow the user to make calls. With Chrome 93, the API runs on a linked smartphone and captures the message.
If you want to try the feature, you can tap your phone number This is the demo page Enter. Automatic one-time password receipt only works if the user has Chrome 93 Beta installed on their device. In addition, both your desktop computer and smartphone must be logged in with the same Google account.
At the moment, the synchronization function is provided only by the Chromium engine. This means that SMS OTPs can only be received if the user is using an Android smartphone. Since the iOS version of Chrome is not based on Chromium, iPhone and iPad devices are not supported. A future update may help here later.
