New Jersey sports betting sites will now be required to confirm user identities.

Although 2FA/MFA solutions have been used by companies in many industries, New Jersey’s requirements are noteworthy because they spell out what is usually considered a best practice.

It's an interesting development as many offshore sportsbooks are moving more towards an "email only" model.

Two-Factor or Multi-Factor (2FA or MFA) Authentication typically combines a user’s username/password combination with an additional authentication method such as receiving a code via one's smartphone or email.

Specifically, N.J.A.C. 13:69O-1.1 defines “multi-factor authentication” as a type of strong authentication that uses two of the following to verify a patron’s identity:

  • Information known only to the patron, such as a password, pattern, or answers to challenge questions;
  • An item possessed by a patron such as an electronic token, physical token or an identification card; or
  • A patron’s biometric data, such as fingerprints, facial or voice recognition. ‍
  • As goes New Jersey, other states are likely to follow.
