How does 2-step text message verification work when I am travelling?

Please contact your telecom provider for instructions on how to receive text messages while outside of Canada.

If you have a smartphone, you might want to consider downloading the Scotia mobile app to enrol in 2SV push notifications.

2SV push notifications only require a WiFi network and are the most convenient way to help guard accounts against fraud.

If you’re still having trouble accessing your account, please give us a call at 1-800-472-6842 so we can help.
