If you changed your mobile phone number or lost access to it, and you want to know how to change phone number on Binance, you have come to the right guide.
It is easy to do, yet to change phone number on Binance remains a big task for lots of Binance users.
While I have seen some users that do not know if it is possible, others do not know how to go about it.
But, in this guide, I will walk you step-by-step through how to change Binance phone number within 10 minutes.
It does not matter if you lost your phone, if it was stolen from you, or if you changed it yourself.
One important thing you should know is that keeping your crypto exchange phone number up to date for 2-factor authentication is one of the best ways to secure your cryptocurrencies.
It provides extra security to your crypto exchange account, and you should never ignore it because, in the crypto market, securing your money is your responsibility.
How to Change Phone Number on Binance
1. Go to Binance and Log in to your Account.
After you log into your Binance.com account, tap on your Profile Icon and select Security from the dropdown.
2. Go to Security
From the Security screen, go to Phone Number Verification and click on Change.
3. Change Phone Number
When you get to Change Phone Number, go ahead and enter your New Phone Number, then click Get Code after entering the new phone number to get a Verification Code.
Move down to Security Verification after that, then click Get Code to get both the email Verification code and phone number Verification code that will verify you are the account owner.
Then click Submit after that.
But if you do not have access to your old phone number, go ahead and click on ‘Security verification unavailable?‘.
After you click on ‘Security verification unavailable?‘ you will be redirected to a page where you can change your Binance phone number or email address.
Phone or email, select the unavailable one, and proceed to change it.
Changing your phone number on Binance to keep your account up to date is one of the good ways to secure your Binance account.
However, you should know that Binance will disable withdrawal for 24 hours, sometimes 48 hours after you changed your Binance phone number. It is to protect your account, I like it, and you should as well.
So, if you intend to make a withdrawal, it is better to make your withdrawal before you can proceed with changing phone number on Binance.
It gives me great confidence knowing that if a scammer gets into my account and changes my phone number that they cannot make any withdrawal in 24 hours which is enough time for me to contact Binance.
