Short Message Service (SMS) Sender Registration Scheme

Under the "SMS Sender Registration Scheme"(the "Scheme") introduced by the Office of the Communications Authority (OFCA), registered users are using "Registered SMS Sender IDs" with prefix "#" to send SMS to help members of the public verify the identities of the senders. Having registered under the Scheme, Hongkong Post will only use "#HKPost" to send SMS to local subscribers of mobile services starting from today.

Relevant information can be seen in "List of Registered Senders" maintained by OFCA. For details, please visit OFCA website www.ofca.gov.hk.
