SMS verification issues

When creating a new profile, some users may be asked to verify your device by reCAPTCHA or SMS.

If SMS verification is required, a pop-up will appear asking you to allow SCRUFF to verify your device by sending a verification code via SMS message.

After tapping SEND SMS, you can manually enter your phone number and wait for the SMS message with verification code to be received. Note that the verification code will expire after 5 minutes. 

When the SMS verification code is entered successfully, you will then receive a confirmation message indicating that your profile has been created successfully.
