The Reserve Bank of India has removed two-factor authentication — involving the use of one-time passwords sent to mobile phones — for online card transactions up to Rs 2,000 (US$29), Live Mint reports. “Discarding two-factor authentication is an opt-in service, which means that customers will have to specifically opt for it.” The move follows the withdrawal of Rs 500 (US$7) and Rs 1,000 ($14) notes.
