The speed of SMS verification varies from country to country. For instant codes and additional security, please use an app like Google Authenticator or Authy for the 2FA codes.

 

Please be informed that completion of the Personal Info section of your account verification automatically activates your 2FA using SMS as an authentication method. Should you wish to, you can later change this from “My Profile” > “Security” > “Two-factor authentication”. For detailed steps on how to do this, check this article.
