Ibotta uses phone number verification to add a layer of security to your account that no one else has access to.
No one else will have the device that your number is linked to and will not be able to withdraw from your account.
Do I need Device Verification?
Yes, although a strong password is a great start to protecting your account, using the same login information across multiple websites can weaken your security. By using device verification, your earnings will remain safe even if your login information has been accessed without your permission or knowledge.
How does Device Verification work?
By using Device Verification, you are keeping your account safe with two levels of protection. If someone is able to login to your account, a verification code (sent only to your device) will be required to withdraw earnings. It will give you more control to protect your earnings.
What if I don't have a cell phone number?
If you don't have a device/cell phone number, you can enter a landline number. If you don't have either, we recommend waiting to withdraw your funds. If you want your funds immediately, we do not recommend using another individual's number but that decision is up to you. Remember that a phone number may be linked to one account ONLY.
What if my phone is lost or stolen?
If you ever lose your device, we recommend contacting your cell phone carrier and notifying them of the incident. Your cell phone carrier will disable your lost or stolen device and stop any SMS text messages to it. After they have been notified, you should be able to set up a new device with the same phone number and continue to benefit from Device Verification.
**Please note: Ibotta respects the privacy of your personal information. Your phone number will never be shared with any third party websites or services. This additional security measure is available solely to help protect your earnings. Add your phone number today and keep your account safe!**
