What are email, text, and phone call forwarding?
When email forwarding is enabled, emails sent to Cloaked-generated email addresses can be forwarded to your personal email addresses. Similarly, when text and phone call forwarding are enabled, texts you receive or phone calls you get on a Cloaked-generated phone number can be sent to your personal phone number.
In order to manage email and phone forwarding settings, you will need to have at least one verified phone number or email. Instructions to verify a phone number or email can be found here. These instructions can also be used to help you manage email, call, or text forwarding at a Global Level within Cloaked.
