One-Time Verification Codes

Bolt uses one-time codes, sent via email or SMS (text message), to verify your identity. You do not need to create a username or password to access your Bolt account.

SMS

Logging in through SMS (text message) is the default method.

  1. Fill your cart with items you wish to purchase.
  2. Navigate to checkout.
  3. When proceeding to checkout, Bolt will recognize you as an existing user, and will automatically send a verification code to your phone.
  4. Input this code when prompted.
  5. Complete the remainder of the checkout process.

Email

Don’t have your phone on you? No problem!

  1. Fill your cart with items you wish to purchase.
  2. Navigate to checkout.
  3. When proceeding to checkout, Bolt will recognize you as an existing user, and will automatically send a verification code to your phone.
  4. Select Email me the code.
  5. When prompted, input the code sent to your inbox.
    • If this is your first time logging in via email verification, Bolt may ask you to confirm your phone number. This is a one-time check that we do to make sure it’s really you. Next time you check out with Bolt, you won’t have to do this step again.
  6. Complete the remainder of the checkout process.

It can take up to 10 minutes to receive a verification code email. If you do not receive it, you can attempt to log in via SMS, or continue to check out as a Guest.
