8x8 Support

Why is my 8x8 number not receiving SMS or OTP authentication requests ?

Applies To

  • Work for Desktop
  • SMS


8x8 SMS is done through local and international numbers. Messages and one-time passwords are sent from providers to authenticate such as banks use shortcodes to send the message.  An 8x8 number will not receive these because short codes are not supported. 


Please Note: If a number is assigned as an additional number on the User Profile and not as the main/primary DID of the profile, it won't be able to receive text or send text messages.
