Global Safe List


(information)

Info

Global Safe List API is now in GA!

This feature is currently in the GA maturity stage.

Customers using the below products will now have access to the Global Safe List API.

  1. Verify customers who have enabled Fraud Guard
  2. Verify customers who have enabled Geo Permissions
  3. Programmable Messaging customers who have enabled SMS Pumping Protection and are seeing 30450 error codes
  4. Programmable Messaging customers who are seeing 30453 error codes

Note : Global Safe List API currently only supports the SMS channel.

Global Safe List API allows you to maintain a list of phone numbers that will never be blocked by Verify Fraud Guard, Verify Geo Permissions, Programmable Messaging SMS Pumping Protection or any other internal fraud & risk check solution.

While we are always adapting our fraud detection systems to keep false positives extremely low, Global Safe List API adds another layer of protection by letting you mark legitimate phone numbers as safe to ensure they are never erroneously blocked.

This API contains three endpoints:

  1. Add a Phone Number
  2. Check a Phone Number
  3. Remove a Phone Number

Alternatively, you can add a previously blocked phone number to the Global Safe List via Twilio Console on the Verify Logs Blocked Verifications tab(link takes you to an external page). See Viewing Logs With Twilio Console for more information.
