It is important to note that the reason Trusona requires you to click two links to verify your account is because some email providers have security features to identify and neutralize phishing attacks. When the solution is trying to follow malicious links, it auto-clicks them. When this security feature is enabled, any product that uses email magic links to provide one-time authentication can expose itself to fraudulent activity. That means a bad actor could register to an authentication service using someone else’s email address and get access to their account — even without the real user clicking the registration link. To combat this vulnerability, Trusona includes a dedicated step in the email verification process of our mobile app registration flow. Once the magic link has been clicked, this step requires the user to actively click on a second link within a web browser, thereby ensuring that only the email account owner can complete the registration, even if the safe link feature is enabled.
