Before you start trading on Paxful, you must have your phone number verified. This also provides additional security to your account. For example, if your account is locked due to security reasons, you can easily unlock it if you have a phone number registered to your account. A verified phone number is also essential for two-factor authentication (2FA). Here is how you can verify your phone number on Paxful.
Note: Before you begin, you need to verify your email first.
- Log in to your Paxful account, hover over your username on the top right of the page and click Settings from the context menu that appears.
The Settings page appears.
- On the menu on the left side of the page, click Profile.
- Enter your phone number in the PHONE field and click Call me or Send code.
Note: We recommend the Send code option as the call option is not supported in all countries.
- a) Call me option
You receive a phone call with the numeric confirmation code. Listen carefully to the code and enter it in the field below and click Submit. Your number is verified.
b) Send code option
You receive an SMS with the numeric confirmation code. Enter the code in the field below and click Submit. Your number is verified.
After confirming your phone number, consider activating 2FA and verifying your ID.
