    Google is removing apps with SMS and CALL_LOG permissions

    In a recent email, they said:
    Can this be wrapped for B4A?

    Probably yes. But the point is, that you need to send the SMS from your server. The SMS is not send by Google.
    So you first need a SMS-Provider configured on your server so that your server can send SMS.

    Hi,
    I think firebase authentication provides the functionality. Also, many APIs like like that of coinbase need you to verify using OTP.

    Many clients projects too need the users to be authenticated before continuing.

    Yes, that´s true. And it is included in Firebase UI already.

    In this case, Firebase UI - Phoneauthentification, the SMS is send by Firebase. And the Firebase UI Components are handling the incoming SMS-Code automatically.

    At least it does work here in Germany. I can´t answer if it does work in every country. And i only used a few Auts with this method. Just to test it. It is not used in any published app.
