Orkut has introduced a new security feature which insists unidentified profiles who indulge in mass automation techniques, inappropriate contents, or any other type of abuse to verify their identity using SMS Verification.
This is a great feature which will give a solid blow to unethical profiles since they’ll get on the backfoot knowing orkut will get a way to identify them if they opt for sms verification.
Users who visit such profiles will get a caution message whenever they navigate to see profiles of any person who has come under orkut’s scanner. I am sure this has something to do with the Inappropriate Content Filter which orkut introduced a couple of weeks back.
Those who are getting the message of SMS Verification should follow these simple steps to verify their orkut account.
- Enter your phone number in the dialog box and click ‘verify’.
- You should receive an SMS message with a verification code.
- Enter the verification code in the dialog box on orkut and click ‘send’.
