We may want to call these mobile methods "Multi-factor"  or something else as there can be other techniques like this that do not rely on mobile devices.  For example, "multi-factor authentication" is used when these methods are employed for authentication purposes.

David,

Unclear why 'mobile confirmation' method is presented in both tables.
Difficult to distinguish between them.
Suggestions:
1. Mobile confirmation extended: It asks for email id (generally given at time of registration)  and allows user to indicate if one time password should be sent via phone call / text message or email.
2. Some financial institutions  who may be required to confirm client's home (physical) address too as part of client registration mail an access card that contains a grid, say 6 rows X  6 columns with alphabets / digits in every cell.
Then at the time of login, the application may require the user to enter contents of 3 randomly indicated cells like A2, D5, B6. An access card is linked to a client. The client  needs to have this card handy or create an e-copy of it say in an Excel sheet ... this may require sighted assistance. The Treasurydirect.gov used this method for some years and I believe also offered to send large print / Braille access cards on request.
Thanks,
Sailesh
