Verification API Documentation

The API has been deprecated. Looking to build a one-time phone verification? Use our Number Verification API instead for a more flexible solution

Service Setup

When starting with Verification API you will first need to register your Service to get a unique ServiceID that will be later used to add and verify your users.

You may have multiple separate web services using the same Messente account, therefore you can create multiple Services and receive multiple ServiceID's in the process.

Request to register a service will be made to the following URL:
