How do I verify my phone number?

To verify your phone number:

1. Go to Edit Profile.

2. Select your country from the drop-down menu. The country code will automatically insert.

3. Enter your area code and phone number.

4. If verifying via phone call, answer the call and follow the automated instructions. If verifying via SMS text message, you will receive a code you need to enter.

If you enter the code and do not see confirmation, please refresh the page. Try to verify using both methods if one doesn’t work for you. You can also contact us for a manual verification process.

5. After verifying, manage text message notifications from your Account > Notifications.

Standard message and data rates may apply for any calls or messages sent or received—please contact your phone provider for more information.

Why verify? Having a verified phone number allows your hosts, guests, and Airbnb to have a way of contacting you about your reservations or your account. You might be asked to verify your phone number when making reservations or listing your space. You need a verified phone number to complete Verified ID.
