Verify Geo Permissions
Verify Geographic (Geo) Permissions [*Beta] is designed to visually allow destination countries to be blocked/unblocked when sending SMS or Voice OTP messages to those destinations. Defining your enabled countries helps to prevent unexpected high SMS or voice costs caused by malicious actors creating unwanted verification requests
You can access the Verify Geo Permissions page in your Twilio Console by navigating to Twilio Console > Verify > Settings > Geo permissions.
To enable a destination country, select them in the list (SMS, Voice, or both) or none to block that country and then click Save. All messages sent to countries that are not enabled will be blocked for the channel that has not been enabled (SMS, Voice, or both).
In the above example, no SMS OTP messages will be sent to 'Aland Islands (+35818)' and 'Andorra (+376)'. By the same token, no Voice OTP messages will be sent to 'Algeria (+213)' or 'Andorra (+376)' either.
By clicking on Save transmission of SMS or Voice OTP messages to any destination countries that are not selected will cease immediately!
Individual countries can be searched by typing in the search box which will disply the results as characters are being typed.
