With SMS verification, we can add an extra layer of security to your account by confirming your identity via text message. We then let other members know you are SMS Verified and that they can fully trust you and who you say you are. Members who use this feature will get an SMS Verified symbol to display on their profile.
To get SMS Verified:
- Log in to your profile
- Click the symbol for My Profile – the circle with a picture at the top right – then choose Data & Settings
- Select the SMS Verified tab on the right
- Enter your phone number
- We’ll text you your personal security code within a few minutes
- That’s it! Your SMS Verified badge is on the way
Please allow up to 30 minutes to receive the security code and remember: the phone number must be from the same country in which you registered with eharmony, otherwise you can’t use this feature.
We’ll store your phone number exclusively for the purpose of SMS Verification. In addition, we’ll only store your phone number if there are legal requirements, and it won’t be used for marketing or advertising.
