Google Messages ready to automatically delete OTP SMS after 24 hours

Today there are a large number of online services operating around the world. By now, even all the banking institutions in the world are tempted to offer their services online.

In this way, with the rapid growth of online services in almost every field, fraudulent access to online accounts, online banking, credit card and debit card payments has become a major issue. With hackers and some people being tempted to make unauthorized transactions through other people’s accounts.

One way to solve this problem is to use an OTP (One Time Password) to approve the transactions one by one through the account holder or cardholder. The most commonly used method is to send the relevant OTP to the account holder via SMS.

OTP text messages sent in this way are rarely deleted, so they are stored in the inbox of almost everyone who receives the service for a long time.

In response to this issue, Google is preparing to offer the ability to automatically delete every OTP text message received within 24 hours of receiving it through its Google Messages app through a future update.

Google Messages v6.7.067 has been reverse engineered and supported as follows, according to a report on the XDA Developers website. It says that although it has not been implemented yet, it has been introduced by the developers and will be implemented through a future update.

Google has introduced a new feature to automatically delete SMS messages containing OTP after 24 hours to make it easier for its users to organize the Messages inbox. An OTP code is usually valid for only 10 minutes. If you do not use it within 10 minutes you will need to get a new OTP code. Therefore, this is not a precautionary measure.

But most mobile phone manufacturers that power their phones using Android offer their own messaging app, with a separate inbox and automatically group SMS messages with OTP and promotional messages.
