Create a Gmail Account Without Phone Number Verification

Why Do Companies Ask for Phone Number Verification?

Companies ask for a phone number verification for various reasons, the most common ones being:

  • Proving you are not a robot
  • Having easy access to contact you if there is some suspicious activity happening with your account
  • Providing you with a simple way of logging into your account in case you forgot your password

Apps and various service providers require your phone number for your protection. Gmail, for example, uses your mobile phone number to verify it’s you and not someone else whenever it detects a login attempt from an unknown device.

In case you haven’t used your email account in a while and forgot your password, Gmail cannot send the ‘reset your password link’ to your mail as this email service does for other apps. In this case, it is useful to have a phone number as a backup.

Not everyone is happy about sharing something as personal as a phone number. You can avoid this step in several ways, but not every option is equally efficient.
