ℹ️ Adding an account phone number

Micro.blog does not have passwords, so when you need to sign in again you usually will sign in with your email address and receive a special temporary link to sign in.

If you add a mobile phone number to your account, Micro.blog will also send a verification code in a text message to that phone number. This happens even though you are signing in with your email address. This can be a faster way to sign in on the web, especially if the sign-in emails are delayed or caught in a spam filter.

For phone numbers outside the United States, add a “+” at the beginning of the number. For numbers in the United States, you can just enter the 10 digit number without a “+1” for the country code.

  • United States
  • Canada

  • Puerto Rico
