I have created mobile number as customer attribute by this code

    $customerSetup -> addAttribute(\Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY,
        'label' => 'Mobile Number',
        'system' => 0,
        'position' => 100,
        'sort_order' =>100,
        'visible' =>  true,
        'note' => 'this item used for login',

                    'type' => 'varchar',
                    'input' => 'text',


    $customerSetup -> getEavConfig() -> getAttribute('customer', 'mobile')->setData('is_user_defined',1)->setData('is_required',1)->setData('default_value','')->setData('used_in_forms', ['adminhtml_customer', 'checkout_register', 'customer_account_create', 'customer_account_edit', 'adminhtml_checkout']) -> save();

But I cannot see the mobile number in checkout.

Where am I going wrong ?

Here you find information how to add new custom field into checkout shipping address. In similar way you can do it for Billing Address.

Unfortunately devdocs doesn't have information how to save new field from checkout in database.

Shipping address is saved in Quote when you switch from step 1 to step 2. Billing address is saved in Quote when you make a order. Then addresses from Quote details are saved in Customer object.

You have to check the core and override some methods (or use plugins for it)

There are many ways to do it, but remember that all datas are saved in Quote first, so you have to extend also the Quote.
