Don’t Be a Yahoo—Get a Fake Phone Number for Yahoo Mail!

If you’re concerned about your privacy online, you’re not alone. More than 80% of Americans worry about personal data leaks and being tracked by companies.

How do you protect yourself and keep using services, social media, and your Yahoo email? Acquiring a fake phone number is quickly becoming a necessity for people who want to secure their personal information.

Check out how DoNotPay can help you get a secure phone number for your Yahoo Mail account.

Why Is Yahoo Requesting My Phone Number?

  • You are using a VPN

  • You tried to sign in multiple times
  • It needs to recover your account
  • You logged in using a different device or browser

Yahoo Email Verification Problems

Even if you want to use your real number to complete Yahoo phone verification, you could run into some obstacles.

The problem doesn't have to be your fault, either. The glitches could also arise on Yahoo's side. The verification link may have expired, or Yahoo sent the code to the wrong number accidentally.
