Text Message Password Protected Link

Rob Howard Updated by Rob Howard

When the Text Message Deliverability Score analyzes your content it examines the content found at any URLs included in your text message. Carriers will block text messages if the URLs contain restricted content.

A carrier violation effectively means that the carriers (AT&T, Verizon, etc.) flagged your message as SPAM and are actively blocking message delivery.

If the URL contained in your text message contains restricted content you will receive a message stating that restricted content was found at the URL. It will also include some examples of the restricted content that was found.

Domains that contain restricted content are forced to use either an automatic reCAPTCHA page prior to navigating the browser to the destination URL or you can optionally use a password protected link.

reCAPTCHA page

A reCAPTCHA page is automatically shown if the destination link contains restricted content:

The reCAPTCHA tests if the request is made from an automated "robot", such as a service checking the validity of links, or a human.

Password page

A password is required page is shown if a password is set to be required for the link:

If you use a password protected link, don't forget to include your password in the text message!

A password protected link will send the visitor to an intermediary page. The intermediary page will ask for a password. Once the password is entered the browser is redirected to the link in your text message.

Whereas a non-password protected link will go directly to the page.

A password protected link requires the use of the built in DailyStory URL shortener.

For customer messaging about restricted content, such as CBD, carriers will block messages that contain URLs pointing to restricted content. A password protected link is designed to prevent automated carrier filtering systems from scanning content in the link of your text message.
