OTP verification 

Why verifying fresh produce users are important?

The OTP is important as e-FRESCO faced many fake users and spammers trying to log to the portal.  One Time Password (OTP) is an automatically generated numeric or alphanumeric string character that authenticates a user for a single transaction or login session.

The one-time password system provides a mechanism for logging on to e-FRESCO platform using a unique password that can be used only once, as its name suggests. 
This prevents some forms of identity theft by ensuring that the captured user name / password pair cannot be used a second time.

OTP Verification verifies Email Address of users by sending OTP verification code during registration, login and contact form submissions. It removes the possibility of users registering with fake Email Address/Mobile Number by enabling OTP Verification. The OTP Verification plugin also checks if Email Address/Mobile Number of a user already exists.
