How to Unlock Twitter Account without Phone Number

Follow Email Instructions to Unlock Twitter Account:

When Twitter gives you an option to unlock the account using a phone number, you may/may not get an option to verify using email. If you see an option to recover your account using an email, you can choose that and proceed.

Verify using Google Voice Number:

Twitter has banned many sites that let you create free numbers and bypass Twitter verification to work on their site. However, thanks to Google’s reputation and authenticity, the Google voice number can be used for Twitter verification. To use a Google voice number, you do not need a real phone or number. You can simply generate a number and log in to your Twitter account.

  • You can either select a new number or use your existing mobile number.
  • Select a phone, so Google can call you and confirm. Once confirmed, Google will allow you to select a new local number.
  • Select a number and enter it on Twitter.
  • Google Voice will send you a verification number on your Gmail that you can enter for Twitter verification.

Contact Twitter Support:

If the above solutions don’t work for you, then contacting Twitter is the best strategy forward. Twitter support will help you understand why you are unable to login with your account and help you log in after asking for more details.

Final Words:

Unlocking your Twitter account can be both tricky and panicky when you don’t have a phone number to log in. The Google voice number works well on Twitter and should help you easily log in to your Twitter account. Make sure to search your emails before you go through all the effort.
