If your mobile phone isn't working properly, or you've lost access to it, or you can't get SMS codes, try the following.
My SMS codes aren’t working on OKX
Try these fixes first to check if you can get codes working again:
- Automate your mobile phone time. You can do it in your device's general settings:
- Android: Settings > General Management > Date and time > Automatic date and time
- iOS: Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Automatically
- Sync your mobile phone and desktop times
- Clear OKX mobile app cache or desktop browser cache and cookies
- Try entering codes on different platforms: OKX website in desktop browser, OKX website in mobile browser, OKX dekstop app, or OKX mobile app
If this doesn't help, you'll need to change or unlink your phone number. For your security, you won’t be able to withdraw funds within 24 hours after changing or unlinking your phone number.
