Step 3: Now you will have to enter our phone number. Next, to it, we will have to choose the prefix of our country. From the search engine integrated with the list, we can find it easily by writing it.

Step 4: After this, we will receive an SMS in which you will find an eight-digit code that we will have to enter into the space that appears on the screen.

Step 5: After this, you will have the possibility to save a series of recovery codes. With them, we can access our account in case we do not have access to our smartphone. Of course, these codes are finite, so we can request them in a limited way. It is best to point them somewhere other than the mobile device itself.
