Your phone number is a unique identifier used for verification within the Everdays app. It ensures that all the messages sent to friends and family are private and secure. The messages reach you on the request of a funeral director or the decedent's family member(s). Your phone number is also used for verification if you're creating an Announcement.
Additionally, your phone number is also used for notifications every time there's a change in the Announcement you're following. You may also get notified should anyone in your contact list pass away. We want to make sure you're in loop with all the changes, and all the messages are delivered successfully.
