In case you do not receive a verification email after you request it the first time, we advise you not to try to resend again and again as there is a good chance for your device to get blocked for "unusual activity."

With that in mind, here is how to resolve the Hive Social verification not sending issue:

  • First, check your spam folder. In case you find the verification email there, mark it as not spam, go back to your regular folder, and then open the email. You should be verified when you click the link in your email.
  • Use Google or Apple Sign In instead of email to create an account, as recommended by a Hive Social staff on Twitter.
  • Another option is to use your phone number to sign up. It has worked for many users and it will work for you as well.

If you are not comfortable with signing up using the alternative methods, you always have the option to try again in the next day or so. Probably, their servers are being swamped by requests, and the best move is to wait until the fuss is over.

Why Hive Social is not sending verification emails?

The main reason why Hive Social is not sending verification emails is that they have a daily quota for email verifications. Hive Social revealed on Twitter that their current email verification limit is 100,000 a day. Once that limit is reached, they will not send any verification emails for the rest of the day.

The Twitter post also says that they are "working on fixing the quota for the email verifications." That means we can expect the daily limit to either be increased or made infinite. The latter would be ideal.

However, if you are using alternative signup methods such as using Google or Apple Sign In or signing up with your phone number, you don't need to bother about the limit as these signup methods will be not affected by it.
