Push Number Matching

Overview

Prompts the user when authenticating on their LoginTC app to select the number that was displayed to them in the connector login screen. Helps to give the user confidence that the LoginTC authentication request they see is the one that they themselves requested, and not a malicious request from an attacker.

Using Push Number Matching

Authenticating with LoginTC

Here is an example of Push Number Matching with Outlook Web App.

The user then has to select the correct number when approving the request:

If the user selects the correct number they are authenticated. If not, the authentication fails.
