Why have I been asked to verify my phone number?

Previously we've made changes to our site and apps to help keep our DoneDeal community safe. That meant that you had to confirm your account is associated with a valid email address.

Today, we've added another step to help improve trust and safety across our site and apps. We are asking all users with a DoneDeal account to verify their phone number. By verifying your phone number it will help to make your ads stand out from the crowd as the most trustworthy.

You can read more on how to verify your phone here 

You'll be prevented from doing the below without verifying your email or phone:

  • Messaging DoneDealers via our Message Centre
  • Placing a new ad on DoneDeal
