What if I don’t receive a verification code?

Normally, when you verify Youtube account, you should get the code immediately. If you haven’t, you can request a new code. It might be of some reasons below

  • Some countries/regions and carriers don’t support text messages from Google. Then, you can try the voice call option, or use a different phone number.
  • There are too many accounts with the same phone number. If you see the error message, “This phone number has already created the maximum number of accounts,” you’ll have to use a different number. 
  • Text message delivery can be delayed. Delays can happen in densely populated areas, or if your carrier’s infrastructure isn’t well maintained.
