Buy Fake Phone Number for SMS to Protect Your Privacy

Just about every website, service, and platform you want to gain access to and participate in requires some personal information. Your name, email address, and phone number are the most common pieces of information you need to give up. You may not realize this but, you can easily protect your privacy by using burner phones. When you buy a fake phone number for SMS, you get the access you want without revealing your real phone number.

Why People Use Burner Phones

Burner phones and burner phone numbers have become increasingly popular due to the anonymity they provide. Many services require a phone number to sign up, and sometimes that number is made publicly available. This can lead to several issues like:

Uninvited CommunicationsSocial media sites often have a way for people to search for users based on a telephone number. Someone who's dangerous or otherwise should be avoided could connect with you. That can't happen with a burner phone number.
Unwanted Contact on Dating AppsFinding a soulmate online isn't easy, and some users might start harassing people who reject them or who they feel particularly attracted to via phone calls and text messages. Use a to avoid this.
Overactive Marketing EffortsEntering your real phone number into a form can bring an influx of spam texts and annoying robocalls reminding you about your car's extended warranty. Avoid these unwanted marketing efforts by choosing the companies to whom you give your real number.

Why Some Sites Ask for Phone Verification

Websites require phone verifications to verify the identity of individuals who sign up for access, membership, or subscription services. The theory is that your phone number is unique to you, and you only have one, unlike email addresses which people generally have several. While this seems reasonable, it's also invasive, and many people simply do not want their phone number to be made available to anyone online.

How Else Can You Avoid Phone Verification?

If you're worried about entering your phone number into an online form, you are not alone. It's a common concern with good reason; your privacy is extremely valuable. Luckily, you can avoid using your personal phone number in a couple of ways:

  • Google Fake Phone Numbers - Signing up for a fake phone number on Google is pretty easy, but be aware that some platforms won't let you use a Google fake phone number.
  • Use Google Voice - Again, easy to sign up for, but your mileage may vary when it comes to sites that accept a Google Voice number.
  • Use Someone Else's Phone - You could always just your friend's, mom's, brother's, or kid's phone number for SMS verification. But, think about how much hassle that may be for them later.
