Message Access Policy

You can apply a message access policy to your Kore message used to control the time and location at which the message recipient can view your message.

When you send a message with a time-based access policy, a message with a Tap to open notification is displayed on the Messages screen for the recipient. When the message recipient taps the message, an ACCESSIBLE IN < Remaining Policy Time > notification is displayed. When the policy time elapses, a notification is displayed that informs the recipient that the message is accessible.

Similarly, when you send a message with a location-based access policy, a message with a Tap to open notification is displayed on the Messages screen for the recipient. When the message recipient taps the message, a NOT ACCESSIBLE AT CURRENT LOCATION notification is displayed. When the recipient arrives at or within the radius defined for the location specified in the access policy, a notification is displayed that informs the recipient that the message is accessible.

Note: Recipients of a messages defined with geo-fence policies can only view the message using Kore Messenger on a smartphone with the GPS feature of the smartphone enabled or using the Kore Desktop Apps for Windows® or Mac®.
