Additions and changes to the Twilio platform
Geographic permissions exist to help you protect your application from fraud and abuse, or simply avoid unexpectedly high costs for voice or messaging usage. Voice Geo Permissions control which countries and subsets of phone numbers you can dial out to from your Twilio project and can be managed in the Console via the Voice Geo Permissions page or using the API.
We have updated the country name for the code +672 from “Norfolk Island” to “Australian External Territories” to be more consistent with the definition by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU):
- Australian External Territories (country code +672)
- Norfolk Island (external territory of Australia) (country code +672 3)
This will not impact the number ranges that can be reached by your account as we have not updated the code. With the Australian External Territories country code (+672) enabled, you will be able to reach Norfolk Island destinations (+672 3).
