Edition ZDNet citing informed sources, said the desire of Apple and Google to develop a new standard disposable SMS messages that will be used for two-factor authentication on sites.

The idea will be that SMS for two-factor authentication used today. However, the developers are confident that the current solution has one drawback – the message is the URL of the site or the service. Thanks to this simple addition users will be able to easily find out where the message came.

If a new format is created, then this service SMS will be:

747723 WEBSITE is your authentication code.
@website.com #747723
