If you added a link to your SMS the recipients' possible interactions will be tracked and stored in their Profiles. If you untick the Track links box, Profiles who click the link in their mobile phone and other corresponding information will not be a part of the SMS Report.
For all kinds of communications, your subscribers will have the option to opt-out or unsubscribe. Make sure you include the ##Unsubscribe## Data tag to the message!
When a Profile click the unsubscribe link in your SMS, the link will lead them to a landing page where they can confirm their wish to unsubscribe. Depending on your options, you will either display a confirmation message or lead them to a page of your choice.
Under the Unsubscribe tab, adjust the messages, confirmation and design of the unsubscribe page, as you prefer.
Go to Preview in the bottom bar, to have a preview of your SMS to what it will look like to your recipients!
Valid Data tags will show with << >> instead of ##, and you will see a sample unsubscribe link.
If your data tag is still between ##, go back to the SMS editor and reinsert the tag by using the drop-down menu. Click "Back" on the bottom bar to head back to the SMS editor.

When testing an SMS, you can test the unsubscribe link to make sure that it takes you to the unsubscribe landing page and that your settings are correct. You can also click the confirm button on the landing page. And don't worry, since it's only a test SMS, no actions will be recorded and nobody will be unsubscribed based on the link in the test SMS.
