The authentication of consumers during remote transactions has undeniable benefits in terms of security and approval rates but raises concerns of transactions being abandoned by consumers, as those consumers are not always able to authenticate properly to their banks.

Merchants and wallet providers have an existing relationship with consumers, and there is an opportunity to leverage authentication mechanisms established during that relationship to authenticate to remote transactions as a delegation of the bank’s authentication.
