Age-gating is a process that verifies a user's age before allowing them to access certain content or services. It is used to prevent underage users from accessing inappropriate or harmful content.
An age-gated number is a phone number that requires users to verify their age before they can opt in to receive text messages. This is important because some text message content, such as content related to alcohol, tobacco, or gambling, is only permitted for adults.
To use an age-gated number, your business must upgrade its 10-digit textable number to a premium registered number. This is required by phone carrier regulations in the United States.
Compared to most other marketing channels, SMS is subject to more restrictions and heavier scrutinization. Unless the proper age-gating procedures are in place, certain industries cannot use SMS to promote content. Further, failure to comply with these requirements can lead to the suspension of the sending number, an audit, and fines.
