Linking a phone number
You can view and send messages in public chats and chats with companies without a verified phone number.
To join a chat, create a chat, or use other features, link your mobile phone number to Yandex.Chats:
- Open Settings in Yandex.Chats.
- Select Link phone number.
- Enter the phone number and select Next. A confirmation code is sent to that number.
- Enter the code and select Next.
You can also change the phone number in the app settings. Other users won't see the linked phone number.
