Can I use virtual numers to receive 2FA messages?

Our Virtual Mobile Numbers (VMNs) can be used to send and receive text messages.

There are however some restrictions in place.
Our numbers are designed for two-way communication from an application with a person.
The numbers are not set up for receiving traffic from an application system like the ones that generate verification codes. (e.g. receiving bank MFA codes)

Virtual Numbers cannot be to be used to verify user accounts for receiving login codes to verify user account and especially those of financial institutions.
This is strictly prohibited and the use of a Virtual Number to receive OTP can result in the suspension of the account.

Note that we do allow to send MFA/2FA messages over a virtual number. This restriction is only for receiving messages.
