How to do procedures via SMS?
Social Security has a list of 58 procedures that can be done via SMS, without the need for other methods such as the digital certificate or Cl @ ve PIN. They guarantee secure access to procedures, with a verification technology similar to that used by banks in some of their operations.
The operation is as follows: once the citizen chooses the access method ‘via SMS’ to the procedure, they will receive on their mobile phone (the one they have registered in the Social Security database) a single-use code that you will have to enter when the system asks you to. This ensures that the code only reaches the person concerned.
