In my java web application, when an admin adds a user, my system generates a random alphanumeric string activation key of length 12.

This key gets divided into 2 parts, each of length 6. One part of the activation key is sent via the users Mobile with SMS and the second part is sent via Email to the user's Email ID.

I was told, that SMS and Email can be easily hacked, so if you're sending your activation key through SMS and Email, a hacker can easily retrieve it.


  • What should i do to solve this problem?


  • Is SMS and Email secure?


  • Is there any third party Security I can use?


  • How do other websites send their email and SMS?

Currently my system sends SMS using the Way2SMS-API and sends Email using gmail.
