Code documentation is included in the SDK. Complete documentation, quick start guides and reference material for the TeleSign API is available within the TeleSign Standard Documentation.


$ composer require telesign/telesign

PHP 5.6+ is required for the TeleSign PHP SDK.


You will need a Customer ID and API Key in order to use TeleSign’s API. If you already have an account you can retrieve them from your account dashboard within the Portal. If you have not signed up yet, sign up here.


We make use of popular, feature-rich and well-tested open-source libraries to perform the underlying functionality of the SDK. These dependencies are managed by the community accepted package manager. If you are unable to add these additional third party dependencies to your project we have ensured that the SDK code is easy to read and can serve as sample code. We have also made sure that more complicated functions such as generateTelesignHeaders can be easily extracted from the SDK and used 'as is' in your project.

PHP Code Example: Messaging

$message = "You're scheduled for a dentist appointment at 2:30PM.";
$message_type = "ARN";

$messaging_client = new MessagingClient($customer_id, $api_key);
$response = $messaging_client->message($phone_number, $message, $message_type);
