Confirmed phone numbers
Grievance officer

We’re introducing a profile setting which allows people in India to mark their Twitter account as having a confirmed phone number. Activating this setting displays a Confirmed phone number mark  in the profile. Only logged-in Twitter customers in India can see this mark, and activating the mark reveals to them that you're also in India.

Please note that the Confirmed phone number mark  isn’t the same as a verified blue checkmark, and doesn’t give people who activate the phone number mark a verified blue checkmark . For information about requirements related to a verified blue checkmark, read How to get verified on Twitter.

Will my phone number display on my Twitter profile?

No, this profile setting only activates a Confirmed phone number mark  next to your profile picture. It doesn’t display your phone number. 

How do I activate the profile setting to display the “Confirmed phone number” mark?

If you already have an accurate, up-to-date phone number associated with your Twitter account you can activate this setting the same way you customize your profile. If you’re based in India, you’ll select Confirmed phone number mark, and toggle the setting on. 

What should I do if my phone number is out of date?

If you previously added a phone number and need to update it, follow these instructions. Having an up-to-date phone number helps keep your account secure.
