Just in case, we recommend checking a few things in your Ring account:

Check your authorized devices.

In the Ring app, you can manage phones, tablets, and computers that are authorized to log in to your Ring account.

Double check your phone number is correct.

If you use Text Message as your method to receive a verification code when you sign in from a new device, make sure you're using the right phone number.
