Hi, @AmandusV!

When I check Gitpod documentation I can’t see an option that requires your cellphone number for signing up. To authenticate, you can use your GitLab, GitHub, or Bitbucket account.

Are you sure you are on the correct website? Here is the link for logging in to Gitpod.

Happy coding!

I used Github to sign in but then it wants to send me a code via phone call. This happened when I clicked start lesson.

I even tried again now. Every time I click on start lesson it takes me to the verification tab and it wont accept my cellphone number

Have you tried without the leading 0?
Eg, if your number is 012 345 6789 and your code is +27
the number to try would be +27123456789

Yes I did. I tried every way I could think of but it does not accept my number. So now I am stuck and can not continue studying.

you can reach out to gitpod support
