1. Why use authenticated messaging?
Authenticating your visitors increases the security of the information as the customer’s identity is verified. Now, as an iAdvize business, you will be able to provide a messaging experience with secured authentication to your customers.
iAdvize authenticated messaging will allow your visitors to feel more confident on sharing sensitive information during their messaging experience and access to past conversations. They will benefit from a better conversation continuity while they are logged-in across multiple devices, browsers, and channels.
Respondents will also be able to know that the conversation is secured while they are chatting with your customers.
2. Key benefits
- Secured and trusted conversation for visitors and respondents
- Multiple domain navigation: if your brand provides a navigation on different websites and domains, authenticating the visitor will make it one visitor across the domains, with a same continuity of conversation and history
- Cross-device experience: the visitor is viewed as the same person as long as they log-in before or during their conversation for a seamless messaging experience on multiple devices
3. How to set up authenticated messaging on your website?
- Step 1: your developers will first need to generate a public key and provide it to your iAdvize contact so that we can activate Authenticated Messaging. See here how to generate a public key.
- Step 2: after activation, your developers will need to follow frontend and backend implementation guide (available here and there). Once this step is completed, you will need to get in touch with your iAdvize contact to finalize the feature activation before launch.
