When you create a Yahoo account or make security adjustments to an existing account, we’ll text you a verification code. It’s necessary to enter when prompted to verify your account or modifications, enter the verification code.
If you received a verification code by text message but didn’t set up an account or modify your security settings, someone may have mistakenly entered your number when they mistyped theirs. Don’t worry; they won’t be able to utilize your mobile number since they lack access to your phone in order to obtain the verification code.

Why am I not getting my mobile verification code?
- Check to be sure you’ve entered the right phone number or email address.
- The carrier or email service provider might have banned the communication.
- You might have labeled these emails or notification messages as garbage data.
- To prevent this kind of information from being banned, contact your carrier by SMS.
- Email: Look in the spam mailbox for the verification email.
- It’s possible that your phone stopped the verification message.
- Verify the SMS blocklist settings. If the message is not already blocked, navigate to Messaging > Blocked, tap the three-dot menu, and check the blocked message list.
- A weak network connection can be theissue.
- Due to issues with network signal reception or the carrier’s network being unavailable, the server’s verification message may be delayed. Please wait until the penalty time has passed or try again to get the verification code.
