Hello @Abigailv,

Welcome to the Klaviyo Community!

Sounds like you may be experiencing a similar behavior as @redstickspice. I’ve included the Community post below that describes this:

As mentioned, this sort of behavior is often times caused by not fully setting up the source of where/how you’re collecting these SMS subscribers from. Particularly if you’re using a multi-step signup form or a click-to-text in an email. 

I hope this helps!

Go to settings → SMS → Automations → and check under ‘keyword management’ - there should be a line item there that shows what is automatically sent when someone opts into your SMS program. If that isn’t it, scroll a little to ‘subscribe keywords’ or ‘subscribe links’ and see what your settings are there - you could also be using a subscribe link which does require you to have a keyword chosen for them to reply with, it’s not necessarily a double opt-in per se, but an extra step if you’re using that kind of link.
I’ve actually subscribed to many, many companies’ SMS messages and I’d say a good 15% have the default Klaviyo SMS language still in their auto-response 😆

Hi @Abigailv


Thanks @eMeg for hopping in to to share your knowledge with a peer, that’s what makes this Community great! 


If your emails are going to spam, that means you need to focus on improving your deliverability, which is essentially building your sender reputation with inboxes and proving them that you have no malicious intent and your subscribers actually want to open your emails! We have awesome resources I’ll link below, but essentially you can decrease your spam rates by the following, which his explored more in  our spam help center documentation here:

  • Make your unsubscribe link easily accessible
  • Enable double opt-in
  • Enable global unsubscribes
  • Avoid spammy subject lines
  • Ensure that your emails render for all users


Additionally, here are more helpful resources to gain more insight and get out of spam! 


Thanks for partipcating in the Community, hope this helps!
