Nowadays, several sites on the Web, ask us to indicate our telephone number to them to confirm our identity and to complete a simple registration. But now, giving your real phone number to strangers can pose some privacy issues.
So why are they using this system that requires us to issue our mobile phone number?
- To increase the security level of their web application?
- To send advertisements to this number?
- To resell our phone numbers to advertisers?
Anyway, I don't know anything. On the other hand, I know that there is a solution to that. Rather than giving away your mobile number with impunity, there is a trick to bypass this SMS verification.
Use a few services on the web that offer you phone numbers where you can receive your messages. SMS messages.
Among these services, I share with you three addresses that I personally use:
Receive-smss.com is a free online SMS and voicemail service. It is not necessary to register. Just select a phone number from the list. You can use it to receive messages from Facebook, Telegram, WeChat, VK, PayPal, AliPay and more.
GetFreeSMSNumber.com is a Free service for receiving temporary SMS messages and voicemail messages online.
SMS-Receive.net is a website which has virtual phone numbers and real phone numbers stored on SIM cards.
The website provides users with a free service with public phone numbers where you can receive SMS online on various social websites or forums such as: NAVERLINE, Yahoo, Microsoft, serverloft, CloudSigma, Facebook, Amazon, VK, OKru , Instagram, RealStatus etc.
It is possible to confirm your registration using these numbers.
Remember that all messages received on this service will be visible to all visitors and cannot be deleted.
The advantage of SMS-Receive.net is that it offers many phone numbers, which belong to different countries, very useful in the event of restrictions that certain websites set up.
