Binance SMS authentication is an extra layer of security for your account. After entering a valid mobile phone number in the online form, you will receive an SMS with a code. When the code arrives on your phone, you will need to enter it into the box in the form to complete the phone verification. You may be asking: Why am I not receiving verification codes? This article explains why you didn’t receive the verification code and how to fix it.

Why am I not receiving verification codes?

  1. Incorrect phone number or email. A common reason for users not receiving a verification code is not entering the correct phone number or email. Make sure you have entered your phone number or email address correctly.
  2. Service providers block emails or SMS from Binance. Many carriers automatically block or put Binance information in the spam box. With SMS, you can contact your phone network service provider to unblock it. With Email, you can search for verification email in spam mailbox.
  3. Your phone is set to block messages. You try to check the settings in the list on your phone. Here’s how: Go to Settings, select Messaging, tap Blocked , tap the three-dot menu, and see if the message is in the blocked messages list.
  4. Your network connection may be out of coverage or weak signal.
    The verification code sent via text or email may be delayed due to poor network signal or out of coverage area. You can move to a better wave location and try again. If that doesn’t work, try again in 30 minutes.
