iii. On the next page, enter the new phone number you wish link, then hit Send Code. The code will be sent to your phone via text message. Enter the six-digit verification code and hit Activate. Verification codes expire in 10 minutes.

Scenario 2: You are unable to receive text message updates from us on your original phone and cannot log in, or you need to switch to a new phone number.
Go to the Login page, and select Switch to SMS Verification after entering your password. Then, select "Phone unavailable?".
Or complete the security steps and Identity Verification. Confirm your new phone number, then submit a request to have it changed.

Note:
1. When completing Identity Verification, upload the required photos while following the instructions closely, or your appeal to unlink your phone may fail.
2. Once you’ve appealed, it will be processed in approximately 1–3 business days.

In such cases, please contact customer support directly, or submit a ticket for assistance.

  • Ich kann mich nicht über Google 2FA anmelden. Ich bekomme keine Aktivierung für Auszahlungen/Einzahlungen? Habe nur noch einen Versuch und bin dann wieder für 2 Stunden gesperrt. Ich würde mich freuen wenn ich einen Anruf erhalte.
