How ZenKey Works

ZenKey is a secure bridge between you, your favorite apps and online services, and your wireless carrier, which has unique capabilities to identify and protect you and your mobile device. ZenKey applies those capabilities so that you can more easily and more securely register for, log into, and use your apps and online services.

How You’re Secure

The setup process verifies the link between you, your phone, and your carrier. Your carrier will know that you’ve set up ZenKey, but ZenKey’s main features will not be activated until you connect a third-party app or website to it. Your PIN is securely stored, and you may need to enter it if a third-party app or website wants extra security or if you need to re-setup your ZenKey account.

How You’re Secure

ZenKey works with third-party app and online service providers pre-approved by ZenKey, so you will have a consistent account registration experience across third-party apps and websites. Your carrier tracks the information you have agreed to share with the specific third-party app or online services provider.

How You’re Secure

When you log in with ZenKey, the third-party app or website confirms with ZenKey and your wireless carrier that it’s your device and that there has been no suspicious activity in your account. Your carrier confirms you have provided consent and sends an authentication to the third-party app or website to log you in.

How You’re Secure

Your carrier confirms you have provided the consent for the supported third-party app or website. Your carrier pushes an authorization notification to you through ZenKey, and once you confirm, you can complete your transaction.
