The three major German Operators Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica Deutschland and Vodafone Deutschland joined hand to launch Mobile Connect on Monday.

The globally established mobile-phone-based login procedure enables simple and protected login to Inter-net services on PCs, tablets and mobile phones. All customers need to register is their smartphone and their mobile phone number. There is no need to enter a user name and password. And the personal mobile phone number becomes a unique digital identity for Internet purchases or regis-tration on online portals. In future, Mobile Connect could also enable digi-tal visits to government agencies.

Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica and Vodafone invite all mobile brands and vir-tual network operators without their own network to also support the GSMA standard Mobile Connect. According to the GSMA, 70 operators in nearly 40 countries have already introduced Mobile Connect.

Alex Sinclair, CTO, GSMA
The introduction of Mobile Connect in Germany is a very important step for both mobile network operators and their customers, as it offers both trust and ease of use in an increasingly complex digital world. The GSMA is pleased to welcome Germany to the growing number of coun-tries supporting Mobile Connect worldwide.

Dirk Backofen, Head of Telekom Security
To protect its customers, Deutsche Telekom investigates 100,000 reports of password theft every day. Mobile Connect closes this security gap for customers, which has been exploited mil-lions of times by hackers.
