Oh My Japan now allows members to register their mobile phone numbers to their accounts to verify their identity and to confirm the country where they live.

Add your mobile phone number to your account to appear higher in the search results and get a "Phone number verified" badge on your profile.

In the search results, members with verified phone numbers are shown in green.

Your phone number is safe on Oh My Japan. The only text message you will receive from Oh My Japan is to verify your account. Your phone number is private information that will NOT be listed on your profile.

We hope you enjoy this new feature!
