What is Strong Customer Authentication?

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) means you need authentication based on two or more elements. These may be

  • Knowledge – something only the user knows, like a password or PIN
  • Possession – something only the user possesses, like a phone or hardware token
  • Inherence – something the user is, like their fingerprint or face.

Nuggets authenticates using the user’s verified identity and their biometrics – on every purchase, big or small.
