What do I need to receive the security code?

You can choose to receive the one time security code via text or phone call if you have a U.S. based cell phone. Landlines can only receive a phone call. If you’re outside the U.S., most phone numbers can only receive a text.

As an alternative to receiving a text or phone call, you can also use an authentication app after successfully creating your account.
