How To Solve imo Verification Code not Coming

1. Double check the number

You may think it is foolish to check the number again but I have seen my friends who were wrong to enter their own numbers and get errors. So Just make sure you have typed your correct Phone number.

2. Messages

Before following other solutions check if your sim is able to receive SMS or not. To check this you can try to send an SMS to yourself from another sim. Or simply try to verify your identity on another platform where can receive OTP to check if your number is receiving SMS messages or not.

3. Clear the Cache

A cache is nothing but a small file that includes files that help future processes faster it can be deleted easily. Sometimes cache is stored in imo and the default messaging app creates problems while using it, so clearing them is a good choice in this case.

Follow the given steps to clear the cache of imo and default messaging app:
  1. Open your device’s Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps & notifications > App info or See all apps.
  3. Tap imo.
  4. Tap Storage > Clear Cache.
  5. Follow the same process to clear the cache of your default messaging app.

4. Check the internet

Sometimes the strength of your internet is not enough to work the app properly in this case app will be laggy and it will not work properly. Thus it can cause an interruption in verifying your authority on imo.

So, try connecting to different Internet if available. If you have different network provider Internet then try using that, or if you have broadband WI-FI then try using that too, in some cases this solution works!

5. Update imo

If you are running an old version of imo then it may have some bugs or it will not work to verify your authority. So try installing the latest version of imo app.

1. Open the Play Store app then tap on your profile present in the upper-right corner.
