Hello Pi Friends👋
Facebook or Mobile verification?
Attention Pioneers: One verify is enough
I just want to let you know that you don’t need to do verification with facebook or phone. Pioneers can mine and maintain the Pi mined even if they’re unverified, but members verified through either facebook or phone number will have more credibility in the network, e.g. eligible to certain chats and giving more confidence to people when others add members to their security circles.
If you are experiencing a Phone Verification bug.
The Core Team is aware of the phone verification issues, but there is no timeline for a fix. Currently, the official stance is that Pioneers don’t need to do verification with Facebook or phone. They can mine and maintain the Pi mined even if they’re unverified, but members verified through either Facebook or Phone number will have more credibility in the network, e.g. eligible to certain chats and giving more confidence to people when others add members to their security circles. The warning messages in the app are not consistent with the official stance and need to be changed.
Follow these steps to verify you account:
If you signed up with Pi Network through facebook your account is AUTOMATICALLY VERIFIED it is NOT NECESSARY to verify by phone number, again - you DON’T need to verify your phone number if you are FACEBOOK VERIFIED. You will not lose your pi holdings. Your mined Pi is safe.
If you signed up with mobile number
US/UK based pioneers: Go to your profile settings and verify your account.
If you are outside US/UK/Canada: Go to settings > profile > verify and choose manual verification you will see 4 digit numbers, send that numbers as sms message to UK number +44 772 347 3314 or to US number +1 650 822 0314 (you will not receive sms message back) just go to your profiles settings, check if account is verified.
- Make sure your carrier can send international sms to US/UK
- Have enough load to cover the cost of sending/receiving international sms
- Make sure mobile data is turned on
Go to your profile, verify your phone number through the second option where you can send an sms with automated 4 digit code once you send the sms you’ll see your number as verified.
please make sure that you can send sms internationally to US/UK, have enough balance to send/received international sms
