Although communication between instant messaging applications has increased in recent years, SMS is always the order of the day. Unfortunately, when used, among other things, for sending messages about posting, advertising and others, they may be subject to phishing attacks, as shown in the latest & # 39; Correos case.
Google wants to improve SMS security, so it will integrate the authentication process within them. We talked about this verification process a while ago, when it was being tested. Now Google wanted to make it legal
SMS Verified, Google's new way to improve messaging security
As a Google account from their blog, they are beginning to integrate the SMS verification system, so that users know that the content is being sent by the company. Once the message is confirmed, we will see the old confirmation badge
Google's biggest challenge will be having a good number of certified companies, at the ease of users
The biggest challenge this Google means is that we don't know how many companies will be certified, or any requirements to fulfill the stated verification. However, matters become important since, among the list of countries where this SMS-certified system will work, Spain is included, and the US, India, Mexico, Brazil or France, among others.
Similarly, Google reminds us that its SPAM protection service continues to improve, and Spain is one of the first countries to come into the program. However, it's flawless, and attacks on sensitive information have sometimes managed to overcome Google's obstacles.
The verification system, at least, as long as you work with relevant companies like Correos, for example, will help users be clear or, at the very least, question the authenticity of who is sending SMS.
