    Prestashop Customer Mobile/Email Verification {User-Guide}

    Prestashop Customer Mobile/Email Verification :  “Verification of user’s Email Address/Mobile Number during registration is a must these days”. It also removes the possibility of a user registering with fake Email Address/Mobile Number.

    With our Prestashop Customer Mobile/Email Verification module you can validate your customers authenticity via Verification code (OTP) sent via SMS or Email. It also provides an option to send an activation link to complete the process of registration.

    Hence, OTP on SMS is the most considerable way to verify the user because nowadays 90% people are using phones so they find it more comfortable to open SMS on their mobile phone screen. An alternative to mobile phone usage – an OTP/Activation link on mail.
    Moreover, our module provides you option to select your own way to make your site secure.

      Hello,
      Prestashop Customer Mobile/Email Verification helps you to validate your customer’s authenticity by sending a verification code (OTP) via SMS, OTP on email or Activation link on email. This does not allows users to login in with their mobile number instead of their registered email.
