What is Verified SMS?
A Verified SMS is an SMS with a business name, logo, and a verification badge plus preview link. Verified SMS brands your mobile messaging and boosts engagement.
And guess what? It’s an add-on we can combine with any Sinch SMS service. Gain security, trust, and end-user confidence without any technical resources needed. We’ll handle the technical integration – for you it’s just smooth sailing.
Verified SMS is currently available in the US, UK, Canada, India, Mexico, Brazil, France, Spain, and the Philippines.Sinch will be adding more countries soon. Verification status and brand profile are automatically displayed on RCS-enabled Android phones.
How does Verified SMS work?
Verified SMS works by checking that Google confirms that messages are sent from a specific brand. Each and every message sent is checked, while message content is never shared with Google. Once the message is verified, the sender’s name, logo, and a verification mark will appear in the user’s message chat.
To send verified messages, your dedicated sender ID needs to be registered with Google through a simple registration routine.
Once a business implements Verified SMS, it becomes obvious to recipients when spearfishing scammers try to impersonate the brand. These scam campaigns become easier to spot, either because there is a UI alarm shown on the page, or because the logo is missing altogether.
