How to get a Bolt SMS verification

  • By Admin

What is Bolt?

In various nations, mostly in Europe and Africa, Bolt is a mobility startup that offers ride-hailing, electric scooter, and electric bicycle services. Markus Villig established the business in Estonia in 2013 under the name "Taxify". In 2019, the business changed its name to "Bolt" to better represent its expanded focus outside ride-hailing. With a focus on giving urban areas access to inexpensive and sustainable mobility solutions, Bolt has rapidly grown and is now available in over 40 countries.


Why should I not use my phone number for Bolt?

When registering with Bolt, you might want to think about using an alternative verification method other than your phone number for the following reasons:

  1. Privacy issues: Your personal information may potentially be disclosed to outside parties, such as advertising or other businesses, if your phone number is used as a verification method. You can contribute to the privacy and security of your personal data by choosing an alternate verification method.
  2. Security risks: In some circumstances, using your phone number as a form of verification can be risky. For instance, if a hacker gets your phone number, they might be able to use it to access other accounts or confidential data. You can lessen the possibility of these attacks by employing a more secure verification technique, like SMSpool.
  3. Unwanted and spam messages: Last but not least, using your phone number as a verification method might occasionally lead to getting spam or undesired messages. You can lessen the number of unwanted messages and notifications you receive by switching to an alternative verification method, like SMSpool.

SMSpool is a good alternative Bolt verification method, as you indicated. It's a safe platform that enables identity verification without the use of a phone number. Instead, you can use a special code sent by SMSpool to validate your account, preserving your confidentiality and privacy.


Step-by-step tutorial on how to create a Bolt account:

  1. Download and install the Bolt app on your mobile device. You can find the app in the App Store (for iOS devices) or Google Play (for Android devices).
  2. Open the Bolt app and tap on the "Sign up" button.
  3. Choose your preferred verification method. You can either use your phone number or an alternative verification method such as SMSpool, which we discussed earlier.

You can get a free Bolt SMS verification from SMSPool. The paid phone numbers work the best. If you don't know how to get a paid phone number; please read our guide on how to get a paid SMS verification below.

Why didn’t I receive an SMS verification?

  • If your device/IP is reported for creating too many accounts, try another device or IP.
  • For spam, either the IP or you have been ghost banned.
  • The phone number is unrelated to where you live; for instance, a Russian phone number has a lower likelihood of working in the US than a US phone number.


To conclude

Bolt is a well-known transportation business that offers ride-hailing, electric scooter, and electric bicycle services in a number of nations. You have the option to use SMSpool or some alternate identity verification method, such as your phone number, while setting up an account with Bolt. While using your phone number as a method of account verification may reveal your personal information to outsiders and present security issues, SMSpool provides a safe and dependable alternative.
