PUBG Mobile’s India Avatar Battlegrounds Will Likely Require OTP Authentication to Log In

Battlegrounds Mobile India has updated its support page to let players know details about the game’s OTP authentication, suggesting how players will log in.

This development states that users will be able to log in to Battlegrounds Mobile India by sharing their mobile number and receiving an OTP to verify their account. For now, this appears to be the only way to log in.

The Battlegrounds Mobile India website mentions that a user can enter the ‘Verify Code’ three times after which it will not work. A verification code will be valid for five minutes before it expires, and players can request the code 10 times before being banned from doing so for 24 hours. One phone number can register up to 10 accounts.
