SMS verification services provide a convenient and easy to use form of two-factor authentication (2FA). It is a very popular option for sites and apps to
implement, since many people have an SMS-capable phone number and it doesn't require installing an app. However, it is not the most secure form of 2FA and
is not the best solution in some cases.
People make security decisions based on the value of the entity they want to protect, the threats to the entity, the probability of those
threats, and the trade-off in inconvenience incurred.
SMS verification is an ideal form of 2FA if your using it to protect lower-value transactions and verifications. For high-value transactions, it’s worth
considering a more secure form of 2FA even if these more secure forms take longer to set up and can be more expensive.
