The initiative, announced at the Mobile World Congress Americas which is taking place from 12 to 14 September in Los Angeles, aims to use a phone number, IP address, account tenure, phone account type and SIM card details for multifactor authentication.
The information will be loaded into a Verify app which will log the user into other apps or online websites without the need for entering authentication details. The app will also be able to handle second-factor authentication.
The device-based ID will serve as an user profile during the authentication process.
The platform will share consumer data with other companies only with their consent, according to the site.
Plugging the project, the site says: "Despite the rise of online fraud and data breaches, consumers and businesses still rely on easily-forgotten and weak usernames and passwords.
"It’s time for a comprehensive solution that reduces friction, combats fraud, and builds trust."
“This initiative expands upon our global operator initiative, Mobile Connect, to bring standardised authentication and identity services to the US market,” said Alex Sinclair, chief technology officer, GSMA, in a statement.
“The solution aims to deliver a seamless experience for service providers from many sectors, helping to drive rapid adoption and scale.”
