Setting One-Time Passcode (OTP) Method Based on Device 🔗

The New

When a shopper receives a one-time passcode to authenticate during checkout, Bolt now dynamically sets the method (text or email) based on the shopper’s device. This change makes it more convenient for shoppers to access and input the one-time code, which makes checkout faster.

This logic only occurs if the shopper has not set a default method in the Shopper Dashboard.

Automatic Login Improvements 🔗

The New

Bolt now offers device-based automatic login during checkout, which recognizes active sessions on verified devices to skip the authentication step. This feature is designed to reduce friction while keeping shoppers' data secure.

  • Verified device: After a shopper successfully authenticates via one-time passcode, this device is now verified and eligible for automatic login during checkout via device token.
  • Unverified device: When a shopper creates a Bolt account during checkout, they do not have to complete authentication via one-time passcode, so this device is considered unverified. Logging in during checkout on another device forces logout on this unverified device to protect shoppers' personal data.

Limitations

This feature is not currently available to merchants who use SSO.
