Main Features

Validate phone number format


Reduce Spam & Fraud when onboarding Users onto your network by verifying phone numbers before authentication or communication.
Numbers can be too short, too long and/or include special letters or characters. Avoid junk entries in your application by preventing your users from making erroneous inputs in your service. Validate all numbers before using them to call or send messages. Validate inbound calls and messages to ensure the caller IDs are not spoofed to non-existing number ranges.

Check Number Type


Recognise number types before sending out communications to your users
A phone number can be a landline, mobile, VoIP, technical, premium, shared cost or toll free. Some number types do not accept SMS communications, such as VoIP and landline. Technical numbers associated with global titles and MSRN ranges cannot receive or originate any communications. The type field helps you identify the best method of sending a communication to the end users.
