Today, everyone carries their cellphone with them at all times.

mTAN as text-to-speech
eCall exclusively offers a combination of mTAN text-to-speech messaging with “High Privacy“ security option: Our system “reads” the security code to the recipient. After processing, all content is overwritten and cannot be acoustically or visually reconstructed. This feature is an ideal addition for situations involving confidential or critical content.
