Uninterrupted Banking in the Clouds: How 2ndNumber Ensures Connectivity at High Altitudes


Imagine this scenario; you're settling into your seat on a long haul flight, ready to get some work done. Suddenly, you realize that you need to access your internet banking, but there's a catch. Your bank's two factor authentication (2FA) system requires an SMS code and you're soaring through the skies with no cellular coverage. In the past, this would have meant putting your financial tasks on hold until you landed. However, thanks to 2ndNumber, that is no longer the case. It provides a solution that connects you to your crucial SMS messages wherever you are.

The Challenge; 2FA and In Flight Connectivity

Two factor authentication has become a standard security measure for our online accounts, adding an extra layer of protection. However, accessing internet banking becomes frustrating when you are on a plane with onboard Wi Fi but no cellular coverage. The SMS code required for 2FA hangs in mid air. Quite literally.

The Solution; 2ndNumber Comes to the Rescue

So, even when you're up in the air at an altitude of 30,000 feet, you can stay connected and keep working seamlessly. Here's how 2ndNumber ensures that you can access your internet banking without relying on cellular coverage;

  1. Web Based SMS Reception; With 2ndNumber, you have the convenience of receiving SMS messages through a web interface, eliminating the need for cellular signals. As long as you have internet access provided by the plane's onboard Wi Fi, you can receive and view your SMS messages in real time.

However, 2ndNumber overcomes this limitation by utilizing the internet instead.
