STIR/SHAKEN is a set of network tools used to verify the true calling number of an outbound call in order to combat caller ID spoofing on telephone networks. TELUS verifies the original calling number by validating the legitimacy of the calling number and displaying a verified status on the receiver’s handset.
STIR/SHAKEN does not block or filter calls.

How it Works
With the implementation of STIR/SHAKEN, a new display option ('Verified') will appear on your device. Only fully Internet Protocol to Internet Protocol (IP to IP) Canadian calls can be validated on STIR/SHAKEN capable handsets. Currently, most calls are not fully IP to IP and, therefore, will continue to display as normal calls.
If eligibility requirements and conditions are met, the call will be verified and appear on your device as such:
You may also see a message such as 'Valid number' or 'Number verified'.
