    I think this is now out of date. When recovering a password by phone, it now asks if you’ve linked a bank card. If you have, it asks you for info about that card; if you haven’t, it asks you for your full name and official ID number. The latter part seems buggy, as the full name field has a very short character limitation and many of us signed up without entering any official ID.

    Any advice, now that they’ve changed the system?
