Companies use SMS messages to share useful information with their consumers. Important details such as resetting passwords, confirming account creation, or confirming appointments are commonly sent via SMS to customers and employees. However, as these communications are often made from random or unknown numbers it can be difficult to trust the source. Some may even come from fraudsters pretending to be institutions that consumers trust and request private information or send links to malicious websites.

As part of Syniverse CPaaS Concierge, Verified SMS by Google is a way for customers to confirm the company’s identity. The feature works by checking, by message, if the content is verified through Google. When a message is verified, the recipient can see the name and logo of the company, as well as a verification badge. This innovation, a necessary evolution of SMS, was designed to make messages safer and more trustworthy, enabling businesses to enhance conversations with users, build trust, and prevent scams.

Verified SMS by Google solves a problem by increasing the user confidence and validity of the message being sent, as it comes from an ID belonging to a verifiable sender and has visible brand information, in addition to automatic link viewing. Companies also receive confirmation that the message has been delivered to customers’ devices, resulting in greater visibility to marketing campaigns.

Verified SMS by Google is currently available in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, France, Spain, Philippines, India, Brazil, Italy, and Mexico.
