Google Verified SMS, security & performance
Many mobile messaging systems are being launched at the beginning of this year. We introduced WhatsApp Business a month ago and RCS last week. Today, it's Google's newest addition, Verified SMS, that we choose to highlight. As the name suggests, the solution is designed to limit fraud.
One goal: putting an end to fraudulent SMS messages
Good news for businesses and their customers. Google is launching Verified sms to counter the growing number of frauds. Spoofing (identity theft) and smishing (text message scams) need not be so bad!
With Verified SMS you can be sure that no foreign entity will pretend to be you to your customers. Put anend to the usurpation of your brand identity and to these abusive uses, harmful to your business!
Your brand will be officially verified by Google, as will the content of your submissions (which will remain confidential after this verification).
Business authentication by Google
As the name suggests, the concept is simple: the company that wishes to do so can now benefit from a complete verification and registration of its domain with Google to send messages to its customers. The official referencing takes a few hours and allows you to obtain a monopoly on your company name but also on your information (address, number, logo) which is a real guarantee of quality with often sceptical consumers. Thus, Verified SMS offers companies a real added value and secures this mobile messaging channel.
How does it work?
To activate this feature, simply contact a mobile messaging platform. We will take care of your authentication. Nothing changes as far as functionality is concerned, you will still be able to benefit from our different products online (RCS, SMS PRO, VOICE SMS...)
*checked text messages only work in the Google Messages application on Android.
