My iPhone XS Max recently broke and while I am still able to use iMessage via my phone number, sending and receiving text messages are nearly impossible. I found out that I would be able to receive SMS texts through the message+ web browser however I am not receiving any short code texts. Many of my accounts require 2 factor authentication but I cannot confirm my identity because these accounts are connected with my phone number. Is message + via web browser unable to receive short code messages? If it is possible, does anyone know how to fix this problem? I cannot download the app because I also need access to my phone number to do so.
We want to ensure you get the assistance you need. What browser are you using? Is there an option to send a securePIN to your email?
I am currently using firefox. Would it help if I use safari or google chrome? There is no option to send a secure pin to my email.
Were you able to get short code messages working using Message+ in your web browser? It still isn't working for me.
