2 stage (text) verification


2 stage (text) verification

Good Evening All

I've just opened my account and as part of the registration process entered my mobile number.

I'm trying to set up 2 stage verification using text to my mobile but when I proceed through the process below



2-step verification

Set up

Text me a code

Set up

The Country and Mobile number fields are already populated with my mobile number, I then press

Next ...and briefly get the message...The mobile number you have entered is already registered.


I have subsequently made a purchase on ebay and paid via paypal but didn't get offered the 2 stage text prompt.

Am I missing something here? It appears that my number is correctly recorded but the verification process hasn't been activated I'm going round in circles and would appreciate any help on offer.

Thanks in advance
