I have successfully installed WhatsApp, but I still don't receive the SMS.

Then, if you still don't receive an SMS, here are some tips on how to deal with the situation:

  • Make sure you have an adequate telephone network

  • If you have a dual SIM phone, remove the SIM not associated with the Qonto's account

  • If the roaming* is on, turn the roaming off and try again

  • Check if the hour and the date of the phone is set in automatic mode

  • Re-start the phone again

  • If you are abroad, send an email/message to your phone number operator and verify that the SMS are on and without the limits

*Roaming allows you to make phone calls or access the internet from abroad using a different operator than your own.

If you have followed these steps and the problem persists, contact our support by email or from the chat on your Qonto interface.
