Verified SMS guarantees security and privacy of communication. At the same time, Google cannot access the content of the conversation. The solution is fully compliant with GDPR.
Before the client receives an SMS, its content and recipient’s phone number are encrypted and sent to Google. Then the regular text and encrypted one are delivered to the client’s phone. Google Messages compares both versions, and upon successful confirmation, it flags the SMS as verified.
The solution requires an Internet connection and Google Messages application to work correctly. In the case of no coverage, messages are displayed as unverified.
