Learn how to configure and use Email and SMS-based notifications in conjunction with your portal or web applications.

Strivacity provides many out of the box email and SMS notifications which are used to inform your customers on security events or activity on their accounts.
Customer notifications are delivered in two ways 1) e-mail (relayed through our hosting partner, Amazon's Simple Email Service) and 2) SMS (relayed using our SMS and Voice delivery partner, Telesign).

Email Notifications provide a way of using email to establish trust with the customer (by confirming that they're the owner of an email account) - such as during initial account activation or during a password reset) or for informing the customer of any actions and activities of their account - such as a password being successfully changed or an MFA method being enrolled or changed).
If you do not have a vanity URL configured:
All email notifications are sent using the email address noreply.[brandname].strivacity.com where [brandname] is the name that you have defined for your Strivacity instance.
If you have a vanity URL configured:
All email notifications are sent using the email address noreply.[strivacityname].[yourdomain].[yourTLD] where [strivacityname] is the name that you asked Strivacity to configure for your Strivacity instance.
