How to set up Multi-factor Authentication on your account

Well, it’s pretty easy to do actually, all you need is a Sender ID. A sender ID is a unique name, dedicated incoming number or standard mobile number that shows in the “from” field of your text messages on your phone. Different countries have different rules around what you can or have to have as your Sender ID.

How do I apply for a Sender ID?

Some countries allow Sender IDs to be set up within a day, while other countries are more regulated and can take some time to approve the application. Either way, the start of the application process is the same.

In our Web App, go to Message Settings (under the Settings drop down) and click on Sender IDs, and then click Request Sender ID.

We will let you know within 1 working day whether or not your Sender ID has been approved or rejected. If we need to register with the regulatory authority on your behalf, we’ll ask you for more information.

If you’re unsure of what the rules are when it comes to Sender IDs in your country, or would like more information, please contact us. Or read this page to find out more about Sender IDs.
