What is a One-time Password?

A one-time password or ‘OTP’ is a unique 6-digit code that Klarna may send to your registered device to verify that it is you making a purchase. An OTP can only be used once and, when sent, you shall be required to enter the correct OTP to complete your purchase. Without the correct OTP, a purchase can not be completed.
