To maintain trust and reliability within the BlaBlaCar community, drivers need to provide and verify their mobile phone number before publishing a ride and passengers must have a verified mobile phone number to book a ride. As on-the-go communication is crucial to a carpool ride's success, landlines are not accepted.
To add and verify your mobile phone number:
- Go to your Profile > About you
- Scroll and tap Verify your phone
- Select your country (the country code will be added automatically)
- Enter your phone number
- Click continue and we’ll send you an SMS with a 4-digit code (this can take a few minutes)
- Enter the 4-digit code
After verifying your phone number, you can manage your message notifications by going to your Profile > Account and choosing Notifications.
Note: Only after a booking is accepted, phone numbers on an account will be displayed to the other party, whether you're a passenger or driver. The number is saved on your profile, and is not displayed anywhere else on the site.
