Help CenterFrequently Asked Questions
Can I receive verification codes sent to my landline number?
Yes, you can use your landline or VoIP phone number to receive an OTP (One-Time-Password) verification code with Texty Pro.
Companies send OTP (One-Time Password) codes to mobile phones to verify the identity of their users during various types of transactions or login attempts. OTP codes are a form of two-factor authentication that adds an extra layer of security beyond just a username and password.
By sending a unique OTP code to a user's mobile phone, companies can confirm that the person attempting to access their account or perform a transaction is in possession of the registered phone number. This helps to prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive information from being compromised.
OTP codes are commonly used in various industries, including banking, e-commerce, healthcare, and social media. They are typically sent via SMS text message and expire after a short period of time to ensure that they cannot be used for fraudulent purposes. Many consumers and business owners face the problem of not receiving OTP codes because they registered their home or office landline numbers years ago when cell phones were not widely used, such as when signing up for accounts like Hotmail or GoDaddy. Traditional landline phones cannot receive SMS text messages, creating a hurdle for authentication.
