Add to Allowed List

Add senders to your personal Allowed list, so they're highlighted in your inbox even if they don't verify.

Example: Your banker tells you they can't verify because the bank has a rule against using third-party services. You can add them to your Allowed list, so messages from them are still highlighted in your inbox.

Get Paid to Reply / Pay for a Reply

Get paid to reply to messages senders have bid on. Filter out these messages when you want to ignore them. Bid on messages yourself, and only pay when the recipient replies. Get a refund if the reply is empty or unfair.

Example: A sales rep sends you a message with a $50 bid. You can reply to earn $50, or you can ignore it. You bid $25 on a message to your favorite blogger, and you only pay if they reply to you.

Icon / Circle 3
Verified Email verifies who's sending you emails!

When you receive a message, Verified Email shows whether the sender is Verified and displays other useful information with labels or folders:

If the sender is Unverified, your account auto replies, asking them to verify.

When the sender verifies, Verified Email updates all messages from that sender. You’ll see the changes automatically reflected in your inbox.

FAQ

What does it mean to be a Verified sender?

A Verified sender is someone who's verified themselves by verifying an email address (via a verification code or link) and verifying with a device (e.g. passing a Face ID check on an iPhone). An Unverified sender is someone who hasn't verified themselves.

As a Verified sender, any message you send will show up as Verified to any Verified Email user who's connected their email account. You only need to verify once!

What does it mean to use Verified Email to verify who's sending me emails?

By connecting your email account, you can use Verified Email to verify the sender of each message you receive. Our technology checks whether the sender is Verified or not and shows you right in your inbox. On Gmail, there are labels; on Outlook, there are folders.

How do I become a Verified sender?

Just get verified! It takes less than 30 seconds. You'll need to verify an email address (via a verification code or link) and verify with a device (e.g. pass a Face ID check on an iPhone). Then, you'll be a Verified sender!

How do I use Verified Email to verify who's sending me emails?

Just connect your email account! It's as simple as signing in with Google or Microsoft. Then, messages from Verified senders will stand out in your inbox.

Can I see only Verified messages?

Yes. On Gmail, click on the Verified (green) label. On Outlook, click on the Verified folder.

What does Some Verified mean?

Some Verified applies to threads, not to individual messages. It means some of the senders in a thread are Verified, and others are Unverified. (It doesn’t say anything about the recipients of messages in the thread.)

Why aren’t auto replies or invites sent from my account in my Sent folder?

Two reasons:

  1. To maintain security. Each auto reply or invite contains a verification link that only the person receiving the email should use. If accounts like yours had access to those links, a bad actor could easily create as many fake Verified senders as they liked.
  2. To not clutter your Sent folder. Users told us that having the auto replies and invites in their Sent folder made it harder to find emails they sent manually.
Does Verified Email read my emails?

No, never! All we need to check if a sender is Verified is the “from” email address of the message. We do NOT access the message subject or content. We’ve gone through a rigorous security audit with Google and a compliance review with Microsoft to ensure we handle data safely.

Are auto replies sent in threads with the original messages?

No, auto replies are sent separately from the original messages so they don’t clutter your inbox. (This is also how “out of office” auto replies work.) 

Can I customize the auto reply text?

No, not currently. But if you’d like this feature, please send us an email at Contact@Verified.Inc.

Can I turn off auto replies?

Yes, but doing so turns off Verified Email in your inbox altogether, meaning messages you receive won't be classified as Verified or otherwise. (That's because auto replies are the only way for senders to realize they're Unverified and have an opportunity to get Verified.) To turn off Verified Email in your inbox, go to your Verified Email page and click the yellow Pause Verifying Senders button near the top of the page. (If you don't see this, click the menu icon and then "Verified Email".)

Instead of completely turning off Verified Email, you can also choose who auto replies are sent to. Under Settings, you can choose to auto reply to all Unverified senders or only non-contacts who are Unverified.

How can I turn off Verified Email in my inbox?

Go to your Verified Email page and click the yellow Pause Verifying Senders button near the top of the page. (If you don't see this, click the menu icon and then "Verified Email".) That's it!

Turning off Verified Email in your inbox disables both automatic emails sent from your account and classifying of messages you receive. In other words, when you turn Verified Email off, that means auto replies and invites will no longer be sent from your account and messages you receive won't be classified as Verified or otherwise. You can't turn off one capability without turning off the other. That's because auto replies are the only way for senders to realize they're Unverified and have an opportunity to get Verified.

Instead of completely turning off Verified Email, you can also choose who auto replies are sent to. Under Settings, you can choose to auto reply to all Unverified senders or only non-contacts who are Unverified.

Automatically Add Badge to Verified Contacts

When a contact verifies, their name in your phone will be automatically updated with a Verified badge. That way, you'll know they're Verified whenever they text or call you.
