Finding your account credentialsBack to top
First, you need to note your account credentials. These values are used to connect Checkfront to your Twilio account.
You can find your Account SID, Auth Token and telephone number (My Telephone number) in the Account Info section of the console when logged in to your Twilio account, as shown above.
The Auth Token is hidden by default. Click on the Show option to reveal the value.
You can have the messages appear sent from your telephone (as listed under My telephone number) or use Twilio's Messaging Services to use multiple senders and sender types, such as your business name, e.g. Experience Bicycle Tours.
Learn more about Twilio's Messaging Services in the next article. If you simply want to use your telephone number, skip to the article Setting up Twilio SMS notifications in Checkfront.
