Briefer asked for my phone number when signing up, why?
Briefer requires an active phone number to create an account. Your phone number is your ID.
Your address book data is private to you. No one else using Briefer has access to your address book data and we protect your informations and we will never sell them to anyone.
Briefer looks at the phone numbers in your address book and then checks to see which of those numbers are verified in Briefer. This allows any Briefer users from your address book to appear as contacts and then you can start Briefing them.
How do you verify my phone number?
After you enter your phone number, please wait for an SMS to be delivered to your phone. The SMS will contain a 4-digit verification code, which you can enter on the verification screen in Briefer. The verification code is unique and changes each time you verify a new phone number or device. Please do not guess the verification code; guessing too many times may delay your verification.
Once we have verified your phone number. You can finish creating your account.
