Getting Started

The Chenosis two factor authentication API seamlessly checks that a user is the owner of the phone number they provide in two simple steps:

  1. Get an access token by sending your client ID and secret to /oauth/client
  2. Add this as a Bearer token to your Authorization header
  3. Call Create Verification (POST) with the users's phone number for Chenosis to send them  4-10 digit verification code via SMS or Voice.
  4. Call Verify Verification for Chenosis to check that the user’s input matches the verification code. If they match, Chenosis registers the phone number as approved.
