Customer Profile API
What is the Connect API?
The Connect API allows you to create accounts for your users. For users who already have an account with StraitsX, the Connect API seamlessly connects to their account using their phone number as an authentication method.
Will StraitsX continue to support the Connect Flow?
We will continue to support the existing Connect API but we are looking to deprecate the Connect flow in the long-term. We recommend that you migrate your users to the Customer Profile flow.
