End-to-end testing two-factor authentication with TextSchedule a Demo
Two-factor authentication (2FA) refers to using a second measure beyond user name and password for verifying the identify of a user attempting to login. The most common methods of 2FA are email verification, text/SMS-based verification, or using an authentication application, otherwise known as an authenticator.
2FA with Text is an essential part of building a secure application, but for a variety of reasons, it's also hard to test end-to-end:
- Testing 2FA with Text requires taking steps in multiple browser windows, or sometimes cross-device
- If using tools like Selenium or Cypress, testing with Text might require using complicated APIs
What's the easiest way to test 2FA with Text?
walrus.ai enables engineers to test 2FA using Text without any of the pain:
- No need to handle the setup account details or credentials for Text — walrus.ai handles that on their end
- No integrating with complex Text APIs
- Writing the test takes minutes, because it's just plain English
A one-size-fits-most end-to-end test for 2FA with Text using walrus.ai:
2name: 'Text 2FA'
5 - 'Login'
6 - 'Verify a code is received via Text'
7 - 'Enter the code and submit'
8 - 'Verify login is successful'
What does the result look like?
