|Knowledge Article Number||000176486|
In order for an Administrator to enable users to use the Email Based Identity Confirmation, an Administrator must select the "Allow email-based identity confirmation" option at the Profile level.

Enable SMS-based identity confirmation
Create a Permission Set
Export all (or filter) User Id's
Create an Import File
Mass assign the Permission Set to Users
Note: If you experience any time-out issues, you may want to try and use the Bulk API and modify the Batch size to a smaller amount, or enable serial mode.
