Why we ask for your phone number
- We pay Ethereum network fees (gas) for your wallet so we need to ensure no-one tries to drain our bank account by creating a million wallets.
- We use it to send you security alerts
- It's used as a default method to enable 2-factor authentication when recovering your wallet
What we store
We store an encrypted version of your number on our servers.
I can't receive SMS from Argent
If you are unable to receive SMS, it is possible to bypass phone verification by tapping Can't receive text messages when you reach the phone verification stage. Please note that we will be unable to send security notifications to your phone number, and initially you will be able to recover your wallet with only access to your email account.
