Thanks to the Emirates ID it’s easy to get access to UAE government services, vote in the elections of Federal National Council, or register an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine. But what if your Emirates ID is associated with a mobile number you no longer use? In that case, just follow these 3 simple steps in order to change the mobile number on your Emirates ID.

Step 1: Go To The ICA Smart Services Page

To get started, you need to follow this link to visit the ICA Smart Services page.

The page allows UAE citizens and residents to amend their mobile phone number registered in the systems of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship.

Step 2: Enter Required Information

Once you’re there, you will be asked to provide certain required identification information, including your current nationality, file number (mentioned on your VISA), passport number, name, date of birth, last entry date (the date stamped on your passport), and email address.

When you fill in all the fields, another form will appear, asking you to type in your mobile phone number and giving you the opportunity to enter a new one.

Step 3: Review Your Application & Pay The Fee

Before you submit your application, you’ll be given an opportunity to double check it, and we highly recommend you carefully review all information to avoid issues and slowdowns during processing.

Finally, you need to pay the fee for changing the mobile number linked to your Emirates ID. At the time of writing this article, the fee is AED 52.10 ($15 USD). An invoice with payment instructions will arrive to the email address you’ve entered in Step 1.

Assuming you’ve made no mistakes, your phone number should be updated in a week or so. To see if an update has been made, go to the ID Card Status page and enter your PRAN (application number) or IDN number.

how to make your twitter account and tweets private

Although influencers, celebrities, and businesses use their Twitter profiles to promote products, services, or even themselves, the popular social media platform is still built around a base of everyday users sharing the news and opinions they care about most.

If you’ve built a Twitter account with a follower list of close friends and family, you may be happy simply interacting with people you know, and uncomfortable with the idea of strangers being able to see your Tweets. In that case, you’re in luck, because it’s relatively simple to make your Twitter account completely private so that only your list of followers will be able to see what you’ve posted and who you’ve interacted with.

In addition to making your account private to non-followers, you’ll gain an extra layer of security, as you’ll also be able to manually approve which followers can see your posts. Here’s how to change the settings to make your Twitter account private:

Desktop

  • Go to the Twitter website.
  • In the left tab, click More, then Settings and Privacy in the pop-up menu.
  • Click the Privacy and Safety tab, followed by Audience and Tagging.
  • Check the box next to Protect your Tweets.
  • Click Protect to confirm your selection.

In the Privacy and Safety tab, you can find additional settings such as Discoverability, as well as manage who can send you direct messages, and more.

Mobile

  • Open the Twitter app.
  • Tap the Settings menu in the top-right corner (gearwheel icon).
  • Tap the back arrow to see the full settings menu.
  • Tap Privacy and Safety and next, Audience and Tagging.
  • Tap the slider to the right of Protect your Tweets, which will turn green.
  • Finally, tap Done.

It’s worth pointing out that you may have to toggle a different tab in order to view the settings icon in the top right of the screen.
