TeleSign is a service that provides phone-based authentication for Password Manager users. To enable the TeleSign service, it must be covered by your license and the administrator must configure the Authenticate via Phone activity and include the activity in corresponding workflows. If TeleSign is enabled, when performing a task on the Self-Service or Helpdesk site, users will be prompted to select their phone number, to which a one-time code will be sent by TeleSign, and then enter the code on the site for verification.

TeleSign service is available anywhere where users can receive calls or text messages. To receive verification codes, users do not need to install any applications on their phones.

To communicate with TeleSign, Password Manager uses REST API.

For more information, see Phone-based authentication service overview.
