How does SMS OTP guarantee deliveries?

Many delivery companies have already opted for this product under the current circumstances. Shortly before your delivery person comes to drop off your package, you receive a one-time OTP SMS. When the driver arrives, all you have to do is give him the code that establishes a security link between you and him.

Many delivery companies such as Fedex, Chronopost DHL or Amazon do not necessarily have the delivery notice signed, but use these codes to validate receipt.
