What does Verified by Phone mean?

Modified on: May 22nd, 2018

It means a member has passed a fraud screening test using their phone. 

Here’s how it works: A member starts the process by entering their phone number on a form. We send a code to the member’s phone via text or voice. The member enters the code into a form at the DealStream website. If the code is correct, we send the phone number and other information to Telesign. Telesign calculates a fraud risk score for the member and sends it to us. We review the score and, if it’s low enough, we verify the member.

Telesign provides fraud risk services to a number of major companies, including Salesforce and Homeway.
