Not receiving verification text message to allow me to give access to my accountant?

Hello Paul-Harbourmari, 

 

Welcome to the Community page, 

 

Can we ask which phone network provider you are with please?

Hi,

I'm in the Isle of Man on Manx Telecom.

I've just tried the voice verification and that doesn't call me either.

Hi there, @paul-harbourmari. I'm here to ensure you'll receive a verification text message to give access to your accountant.

 

First, allow me to share some possible reasons why you didn't receive a verification text message:

 

  • The phone number that is associated with your Intuit Account is incorrect.
  • Your phone plan doesn’t include SMS text messages. 
  • Your phone plan doesn’t allow you to receive messages from shortcodes. You'll want to reach out to your phone provider to see if your plan can be configured to receive SMS messages and shortcodes, allowing you to receive Intuit validation codes.

 

It's also possible that the phone number you've entered was not selected as the default setting in QuickBooks Online (QBO) to send the text message verification. To fix this, you can setup code verification via text message. Here's how:

 

  1. Log in to your Intuit account.
  2. Then, from the left menu, click Sign In & Security.
  3. In the Two-step verification field, select Turn on.
  4. Ensure your phone number is correct, and select Text message to receive a standard six-digit verification text code.
  5. Click Turn on.
  6. Enter the code, then select Continue.

 

For more details about this, please visit this article: Verify your account with multi-factor authentication.

 

Once everything is fine, manage your accountant access again. 

 

In case you no longer want an accountant to access your books, you can easily remove them. For the detailed steps, check out this link: Remove an accountant.

 

I'm always around if you need further assistance in receiving message verification for your accountant access in QBO. Don't hesitate to leave a response below. Have a good one.

Hi,

I've contacted my mobile provider and they have looked in to my problem. They have come back saying that they have not received any attempted short code messages to my number. they advised that I contact quickbooks and ask if you have changed your provider as that is normally the issue with living on the isle of man we get forgotten in the service change.

Hi paul-harbourmari, thanks for getting back to us, do you receive all other texts from Intuit as usual, such as when logging into your account if you have 2-factor authentication enabled?

I did try to turn on the two factor but again I didn't receive the text.

I changed my contact mobile number to my wife's to see if it would work but it didn't.

Hi Paul-harbourmari, can you try turning the phone off and on again, and make sure you do have signal and try log in and request he code to be sent to you. Let us know how you get on.

I've done a full hard restart and shutdown a number of times but still nothing.

I can receive shortcode messages from my bank and from sumup card machine so its not my phone.

Hi Paul, it should be under your profile if you click on your name and then there should be an email option. We can't post it here as the Community public posts redact any personal information.
