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:

  1. Open Settings in Yandex.Chats.
  2. Select Link phone number.
  3. Enter the phone number and select Next. A confirmation code is sent to that number.
  4. 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.

Restriction. If you use Yandex.Chats with multiple Yandex accounts, provide a different phone number for each one. You can't use the same phone number for different accounts at the same time.
