The SMS text option is for use with mobile phones and will not work with landline phone numbers. Blink uses this number to positively associate your device to the Blink app to ensure the person making changes is you. Your information is private and will not be used for any additional purposes or shared with third parties.

Learn more why we need your phone number. Contact Customer Service if you don't have a phone number.

   

A SMS text message containing the PIN code is sent to the phone number, and you are shown another PIN entry screen.
