Can I receive SMS short codes from Bank of America for 2FA?

title. I'm not from the US and I need such a service where I could receive short code SMS for 2FA from The Bank of America, as many virtual numbers are unable to do so.

Please let me know thanks.

Chances are we cannot rely on Fizz for SMS short codes during the stabilization period.

A few known issues currently being worked on:
  • Text messages (SMS) sent by certain companies, such as Microsoft and Google to name a few, are not received.

 

The good news is with Bank of America, you have the choice of customize email, text and mobile app alerts.

My bank and PayPal works excellent, no idea if Bank of America works. I'm pretty sure Fizz numbers are not virtual, they are with a sim card. Do you always have the option to try it?

As explained on the following link, you can ask for a SafePass card with BofA for a one-time fee of $19,99 instead of SMS, that is a not-so-perfect solution in my opinion considering the SIM swap possibility with SMS 2FA: https://www.telesign.com/turnon2fa/tutorials/how-to-turn-...

Most company now offers 2FA alternatives instead of SMS. I can mention codes generated by an authenticator app, push-to-phone authentication and other alternatives.

Hi Yoav, according to this website : https://twofactorauth.org/#banking

You can either use SMS or Email, you should be fine one way or the other , But sometimes there is some SMS 2FA not working with Fizz for the moment, it is being investigated by them and should be fix in the future.
