Why does YouTube ask for my phone number?

We take spam and abuse seriously. Using phone numbers to verify identity is one way to protect our community and combat abuse.

We use the phone number to send you a verification code. We also make sure the phone number is not being used on a large number of accounts.

I haven't received the verification code

You should get the code immediately. If you haven't, you can request a new code. Text message delivery can be delayed. Delays can happen in densely populated areas, or if your carrier's infrastructure isn't well maintained. If you've waited more than a few minutes and still haven't received our text message, try the voice call option.
