What do you mean by that?
If you have already receive a code it could be that someone trying to log in to your account
so you don`t need to give someone this code

Customer Replay

I got messages n phone saying do not give code if you did not ask for it just wondering what could happen if I was dumb enough to give this other person the code

So, don`t worry and don`t give someone it
The texts contain a verification code that Telegram asks people to enter to complete a new device setup. A hacker with access to someone's text messages can obtain these codes and enter them to add their own devices to the person's account, thus gaining access to their data including chat histories.
Is there anything else I can do for you today?

Customer Replay

No I guess
