2-Factor Auth, Alerts & Appt Reminders
To enable sending any one-time alerts or 2-Factor Authentication you must contact us. Please detail exactly what types of content you want to send and we will release the details necessary for you to send these alert types.
If you want to authenticate someone via SMS, you can do so without sending an opt-in confirmation. 2-Factor Authentication is classified as a one-time notification and it is generally initiated by the mobile subscriber when logging into an application. cloudwi.re uses the marketing short codes to deliver 2-Factor authentication.
User Requested One-Time Alert
You may send a one-time alert (or Coupon or promotion) to a subscriber without sending an opt-in confirmation as well, If say for example, the subscriber requests that information via a web-form or IVR. Make sure you display proper compliant language in the web-form or IVR for responder alerts. cloudwi.re uses the marketing short codes here as well to deliver one-time alerts.
However, for both examples above, if you wish to capture any inbound messages from the subscriber cloudwi.re must enable those messages to go out on the communication short codes. Contact us and we can discuss what might be best.
Ongoing alerts are recurring message campaigns. There are no unpublished method for these alert types. You must opt-in the subscriber and send them a confirmation message before commencing alerts.
In special cases, Federal, State and Local governments are exempt from TCPA compliance. To see it in action, check out what cloudwi.re client, When to Vote, did for the city of Flint, MI during their water crisis.
Obviously, do consult your legal advisors before beginning any government notification campaign.
