Phone Verification Without A Phone
These days of big brother and big tech, companies are collecting even more information about us.
When you create an account on Gmail, Whatsapp, Twitter or nearly any other app or website, they require you to REVEAL your phone number. And your phone number reveals who you are.
Think of your phone number as a virtual social security number. One small step you can take is when you register with these services is not to hand over your real phone number.
You can instead use a disposable or burner number to phone verify the account. You will be sent a verification code to your new temporary number that you can then use to successfully verify the service.
It’s just one more way of keeping those nosey companies from watching your every move.
