A One Time Code (OTC) is the term used for a password or passcode that can only be used a single time. Once it has been used, successfully or unsuccessfully, then it becomes invalid. The Swivel Authentication platform provide an OTC to a user in a number of ways:

The OTC can be sent to the user as an OTC or for additional security as a PIN protected Security String, the term used to send an unprotected OTC is PINless, see PINless How To Guide

The Swivel authentication platform supports the use of both PINless and PIN protected users.
