Yes! The following plans and subscriptions support verification codes:
Note: Free accounts (WiFi-only and Nationwide Talk & Text with Ads) do not support verification codes
I have a subscription but I'm not getting verification codes. What do I do?
Some services do not support TextNow numbers for verification or for setting up Two-Factor Authentication. If you're having trouble receiving a verification code (or short code), please reach out to that company's support center to verify whether or not they support TextNow.
If the app you're trying to verify does support VoIP numbers but the code isn't coming through, we recommend trying to verify via voice call instead if available.
Why do I have to pay for verification codes?
Our mission is to provide everyone with an affordable way to communicate. Because we have access to a limited inventory of phone numbers, we recycle inactive numbers tied to our free WiFi service. If your number is released due to inactivity, you may have issues accessing online accounts tied to that number. By buying Lock In Number (or any of our other subscriptions listed above) you are ensuring that your number will stay on your account even if you don't use it every day.
Why is this more secure?
We place a high value on the safety and privacy of all of our users, and securing your number reduces the risk of losing your number (that may potentially be linked to other personal accounts), and addresses further industry-wide fraud concerns.
Our platform is meant to offer an affordable means of communication for people and we want to keep providing that value for our customers in a secure way.
