An SMS alert is a message sent by merchants or organizations to mobile phones or devices, to notify something to the receivers.
An SMS alert is just like an SMS message. People may see an excerpt after receiving it, and he or she can choose to open it or not according to the content.
There are various types of SMS alerts, including appointment reminders, banking transactions, and sales events by merchants. An SMS alert can be urgent or non-urgent messages. In many cases, an SMS alert is sent out to large numbers of people simultaneously. SMS alerts that contain personal information, such as banking transactions or payment requests, are usually handled in safer ways.
SMS alerts can be subscribed by the user. People pay for this service, which includes news, sports, weather, and stock updates. For example, if you want to know the result of the European Football Championship, you can subscribe to an SMS alert from relevant news apps.
