SMS Opt-in Compliance for Local and State Government Agencies

Although many SMS and Email compliance rules do not apply for governmental / non-marketing entities, we recommend enabling self-service Opt-out compliance for non-emergency or non-court-ordered use cases.

How to ensure recipients are opted-in:

  • They text your phone number first
  • They’re someone you have an existing and active case with
  • They share their number via web or physical form
  • They give written consent
