If you choose not to set up a dedicated number for your SMS's our platform will automatically select a Mobile number to send the SMS's from. This Mobile number is shared across many clients, which could include your competitors.
We highly recommend you choose to purchase a dedicated number for your business from which all messages will be sent. You can also choose to use Alpha-Numeric characters as the FROM name however this will result in no replies being possible with this method.
