SMS code and call not working

this is the second time I have run into an issue with two factor authentication and it presented itself the same way. I try to login on a new device (I no longer can get the old device to boot) and I put my SIM card in and can confirm that I receive text/calls from other numbers. However, when I try to get an SMS code or a call to my phone, I never get a call or SMS. I would love to confirm the phone number that is being used, even if it is just the last (4) digits but I cannot seem to find a way to do that without getting into the vault.

Re: SMS code and call not working

is it possible to confirm my identity manually and temporarily disable the SMS verification so I can get into the vault? That was what I did last time this happened and it was the only way.

SMS Passcode sent! is not sending and Call Me doesn't work either.

I'm locked out of my LastPass account I remember my username and master password, however, when I try to log in it takes me to complete multifactor authentication and when I click 'Send me an SMS passcode' I do see a message that SMS has been sent but I never receive the SMS.

If I click the 'Call Me' option I get this error: Multifactor authentication failed! 


I think I had the authenticator app set up on my phone but I recently changed my phone and I don't have access to my previous phone anymore to use the code from the app.

Kudos to LastPass support for resolving this so quickly. They disabled the MFA on my account and I was able to log in.
