What is Verified SMS?
Verified SMS is an SMS, or text message, featuring a business name, logo, preview link, and a verification badge. It’s an add-on that we can combine with any Sinch SMS service.
Verified SMS is currently available in the US, UK, Canada, India, Mexico, Brazil, France, Spain, and the Philippines.
RCS-enabled Android phones automatically display verification status and brand profile.
How does Verified SMS work?
SMS works thanks to Google confirming messages are sent from the brand specified. Every single message sent is checked, without content ever being seen by Google.
Once a message is verified, the brand’s name, logo, and a verification mark appear in the message chat.
To send verified messages, register your dedicated sender ID with Google. This is a simple process that we can help with.
What’s required to send Verified SMS?
1. Registration of your Sender ID with Sinch and Google – this is a simple process, and we can help you get set up.
2. An Android RCS messaging-enabled handset so that end-users can receive your messages.
Note: Verified SMS is currently only available in select countries – more will follow soon.
Why should I use Verified SMS?
Businesses are using SMS as a channel to break through the noise and to get closer to their audience, and consumers love it. Sadly, spam and fraud can be an issue. SMS phishing attempts have increased and are getting more difficult to spot, and for brands who’ve worked so hard on building trust with consumers, this is a big issue – enter Verified SMS to save the day!
