What is the verification process?
The verification process is a security measure that we have implemented to protect our users' accounts and ensure the integrity of our services. During the verification process, there may be a temporary interruption in your incoming and outgoing communication. Purchase and renewal of Phoner numbers are also temporarily suspended.
What do I need to complete the verification process?
To ensure that we can send you a verification code, you will need a real mobile phone number that is capable of receiving verification codes.
Please make sure that the phone number you enter on the app:
- Has not been used to verify another account with us i.e. you have not previously used this number on another Phoner account.
- Is not one of our own Phoner numbers i.e. you cannot use any of the Phoner numbers that you own.
- Is a valid and real phone number i.e. the number is purchased and renewed via a post-paid subscription to a local carrier provider.
Which countries are accepted for the verification process?
At the moment, the following countries are accepted for the verification process:
