These are the most commonly asked questions and answers:


Q. I did not get any Welcome email to verify my email.  My channel requires email verification.  What can I do?

A. Sign in using your account at zello.com, then make sure the email shown is correct and click the link to resend verification email. If you didn't receive it within 10 minutes your email provider may be blocking Zello. In that case you can try using a different email or contact Zello support. Please note that Zello does not require email verification to work, only selected channels do.
