Abstract or Summary:
Passwords get pwned. SMS 2FA gets compromised. We spend time clicking stop signs just to convince computers we're human. All of this in an attempt to identify a user we will probably never personally know. It's a fascinating challenge and we're up to the task!

This talk will walk through new channels for identity management beyond email and SMS. Encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp broaden our options for delivering tokens and secure communications but lack the seamless user experience of Push Authentication or the offline benefits of TOTP. We'll dive into the tradeoffs for these approaches and help you choose the approach that will best protect you and your customers from signup to account recovery. Note: Video of presentation:
