I registered to Upwork in 2018 and I never used it. I ended up in Upwork website again now becaue I googled my name and I found out my profile is public. I entered my account trying to modify it but when I apply the changes the website says I should enter my phone number in order to get an auth code and approve the changes. When I enter the phone number, even if it is 100% correct (I tried with the international prefix, without it, with the starting 0 and without it), it gets stuck. I checked from Chrome dev tools the response and it says it's a 400 error with an invalid phone number entered. Is there anyone who can help me?
I am trying to complete my account as a freelancer but the profile form is telling me that my phone number is already being used by another account. I have checked my phone and it would appear as though I received a text last year for a confirmation code. Unfortunately when I search through all my emails I can't seem to find anything to state that I have created an account.
I have tried accessing my account using my Live, Outlook and GMail accounts. Each one of them states that there isn't an account for these email addresses. I have tried to find a solution to this through the community but what I could see was a link to a locationt to raise a ticket with support, but the link doesn't work any more. As the post was an old-ish one I am guessing things have changed a little since then.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
