When should I use PhoneID over Score?

Last Updated: Jul 12, 2017 04:37AM UTC

PhoneID 
Return data characteristics of the submitted number.  This product should be used when seeking specific information about a phone number's characteristics, which include: phone type and carrier, to check whether a number should be able to receive SMS.

Score
Processes a range of inputs to return a risk assessment of whether the number characteristics and behaviors at the time of the transaction reflect type and behavior that is most often associated with fraud.  Please note that Score also returns PhoneID data.

Score should be used to indicate whether a number should be allowed, flagged, or blocked to prevent abuse, fake or suspicious users, grow a user base responsibly, and protect brand value and reputation.
