Additional Information

Verify works with both fixed or landline and mobile numbers in all countries around the world, excluding our list of high-risk countries, for which the service is unavailable. This is a part of our proactive measures to restrict certain countries where we have seen our customers being used as a middleman for conducting illicit activities.
