How do I change my phone number?
This article is designed users who want to change their phone number and still have access to their current number. If you no longer have access to your phone number and need to update to a new phone number, please visit this article:

In order to change your phone number, we first need to verify your identity to ensure the protection and security of your account.

  • First, we'll need to verify your new mobile phone number.
  • Then, you'll need to upload a selfie of you holding your ID and the code you receive.

If you have successfully completed all of the instructions below, your phone number will be changed within 48 business hours from submitting your request.


You can change your phone number using the web browser version of your account.
