Frequently Asked Questions
When you create an account, you’ll see two different screens:
Registration: This screen appears when you’re creating a new account or reregistering your existing account. To confirm that you own the phone number, you’ll be prompted to enter a 6-digit registration code sent to you via SMS or phone call. Verifying your phone number with a registration code is the only way you can activate your account, and you must be able to receive the code on your phone.
Two-step verification: This screen appears after you successfully register your phone number. Two-step verification is an optional feature that adds more security to your account. When enabling this feature, you create and confirm a unique PIN that’s required to access your account. The two-step verification PIN is different from the 6-digit registration code you receive via SMS or phone call.
