The process, illustrated on the figure below, is not only improving the speed of the process (even if slightly) but, more importantly, helps to avoid input errors when the OTP is typed in manually.
The speed of the process (yet to be evaluated and compared to manual input speed) can be further improved by leveraging the Shortcuts app functionality of modern iOS (v 12.0 and higher). A shortcut within this app is a quick way to get one or more tasks done with your apps. By creating a set of tasks using the Shortcuts app we can minimize the number of actions required to be done by the user to copy the OTP from the EVVIS device.
The figure below shows an example of tasks created with Shortcuts that merges 3 different user actions into one, namely:
- Launching the QR reader
- Getting the text encoded in the QR code
- Copying the recognized text to the clipboard
will be replaced by one action: launching the Shortcut task only.
