PIN codes are valid for 40 minutes. After one minute, the "Resend PIN Code" option appears.
Next, you are presented with a Phone number entry screen.
Tap the Phone number entry line to bring up a keypad.
Select your country code from the menu that is displayed when you tap the flag icon next to the Phone number entry line.
Enter the phone number you wish to use for device verification and tap "Next".
If you prefer to not use SMS, the PIN code can be read to you by an automated Voice call instead.
To choose this option, select "Voice call" and tap "Next".
Note: The Text (SMS) option must ONLY be used with mobile phone numbers and will not work with landline phones. Both mobile and landline numbers can be used with the Voice call option. Blink ONLY uses this number to verify your account. Your information is private and will not be used for additional purposes or shared with third parties.
At this point, an SMS Text message containing the PIN code is sent to the phone number, and the PIN entry screen is opened for you.

Once your account is verified you will be prompted to link your new Blink account to your Amazon account, by tapping on the Link Accounts button. This is necessary in order to take full advantage of subscriptions, after the initial free trial period expires. You also have the option to select "Skip" which will take you to the home screen, without linking your accounts. Click here to learn how to link your Blink and Amazon accounts another time.
Then sign into your existing Amazon account or create a new one if needed. The link is then established between accounts and click Done.
You will then see the Add Device screen where you can add a new system to your account.
