In today’s article, I will be showing you how you can change your phone number on TikTok without verification.
TikTok ensures security within their app, whenever you want to change the current phone number linked to your TikTok account, TikTok will send a confirmation code to your that number (the number you want to change from).
This is for security reasons, and also to ensure that the person doing this action is the right person.
Without this code, you won’t be able to change your Phone number, because that is what will be used to authenticate the updating of your phone number.
