Phone Verification

If you didn't create your Paxful account using your phone number, you'll need to verify it to access certain levels of your account. This also provides additional security to your account with tools like two-factor authentication (2FA). Here's how you can verify your phone number on Paxful if you didn't create your Paxful account using your phone number.

  1. 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.

    Note: We recommend the Verify option as the call option is not supported in all countries.

    b) Verify (SMS) option.
