PIN codes are valid for 40 minutes. After one minute, the "Resend PIN Code" option appears.

When you have verified your email address, the app configures your SMS text phone number to send alerts and for account verification.


When you are presented with a Phone number entry screen, tap the Phone number entry line to bring up a keypad.

Select your country code from the menu that is displayed when you tap the flag icon next to the Phone number entry line.

Enter the phone number you wish to use for device verification and tap "Next".

 

If you prefer to not use SMS, the PIN code can be read to you by an automated Voice call instead.
To choose this option, select "Voice call" and tap "Next".

Note: The SMS text option should only be used with mobile phone lines and will not work with landlines. Blink ONLY uses this number to positively associate your device to the Blink app - to make sure the person making changes is you. Your information is private and will not be used for additional purposes or shared with third parties.
