Improve Fraud Protection in the Mission Control Portal
Protecting yourself against call fraud and hacking is an issue we take seriously at Telnyx
By Michael Bratschi
Protecting yourself against call fraud and hacking is an issue we take seriously at Telnyx. That’s why we built fraud protection features into the Mission Control Portal that can help minimize your risk. Here’s a quick rundown of each setting and how to access it.
Max Destination Rate
The max destination rate controls how much you’re willing to pay per minute for each outbound call. Calls to destinations with per minute rates that are higher than your max destination rate will not be allowed. You can set your max destination rate in the Outbound Profiles dashboard in the Mission Control Portal. Simply click on the gear button to the right of a profile and select advanced options. Then set the max destination rate in the advanced options window. Watch the Tutorial Video Here
Outbound whitelisting enables you to select which countries or regions are allowed for outbound calling. Outbound calls to destinations that have not been whitelisted will not be allowed. You can create your outbound whitelist from the Outbound Profiles dashboard. Just click the gear button to the right of a profile, select advanced options, then scroll down in the advanced options window to see a list of regions and countries that can be whitelisted for outbound calls.

Daily Spend Limit
Your daily spend limit determines how much can be spent on outbound calls per day. A daily spend limit can be set for each connection associated with an outbound profile. Once the daily spending limit for a connection has been reached, all outbound calls on that connection will be blocked, and the account owner will receive a notification email. The daily spend limit resets each day at 00:00:00 UTC. Watch the Tutorial Video Here
These three settings protect your account against unauthorized or excessive outbound calls that eat up your budget and can stop your business from making important connections.
