Why am I unable to get OTP?

Sometimes, users may experience issues with OTP delivery via SMS. You can attempt the following to fix this issue:

  • Add an email address as an alternative log-in option. When you log in, the OTP will be sent to your email address.

  • Consider using the USSD alternative log-in option.

  • If you have turned on your mobile network's Do Not Disturb (DND) setting, we suggest you opt out of the DND setting as it could prevent you from receiving the OTP when you request a new one.
