Google Verified SMS
Verified Google SMS adds sender verification and branding to business SMS messages, making these messages safer and more trustworthy. Users can then see the sender’s business logo and name, and a verification badge.
Engage customers with trusted, branded messages
Google Verified SMS for business messaging
Brands using Google verified SMS can benefit from building stronger trust and security with their customers. Eliminating the doubt that a message is a spam message or phishing for data, customers will more likely engage with your messaging. This encourages more conversions, as customers are safe in the knowledge that messages have been pre-approved and verified.
The way Google Verified SMS works
It can be difficult to trust the identity of a business sending you Google SMS messages. Some messages may be misleading and pretend to be from businesses you trust. These messages may ask for private information or link to dangerous websites – this is called "phishing."
When Verified SMS is on and you receive a message from a business registered with Google, Google translates the message that you receive into an unreadable authenticity code, all on your device. Then, Google compares this code with unreadable authenticity codes sent to Google by the business. If these codes match, Google confirms that the message content was sent by the business, and Messages shows you information about the business, such as the business’s logo with a ‘verified’ icon.
Google uses your device’s phone number to create authenticity codes. Google does not see your messages, including when authenticity codes are sent to Google directly.
