Currently, almost every service on the internet uses verification via OTP. Users are required to complete this process either during registration or when trying to verify and thereby get access to more features with a registered account. In both these cases, though, it is necessary to provide and confirm the mobile phone number with a unique one-time password. But what to do if for some reason your current phone number is not available? This verification feature can be bypassed with multiple methods including one that involves using a temporary phone number.
Using another method
Not every online service provides users with the option to register an account using something else except for a mobile phone number. However, some do. There are a lot of websites and apps that allow signing up for them in another way instead of going through verification by phone number. Users also could be offered to do this with:
- Email address;
- Profile on one of the social networks;
- Instant messenger account.
Usually, all available registration methods are presented on the appropriate page. With that said, if you are requested to verify your mobile phone number when signing up for a certain website or app and don’t want to go through this process, just look for other methods. They should be presented on the same page. If there are none, then the only way to sign up for that online service is by using a phone number. In this case, there are two completely different solutions.
Purchasing created account
This is the first solution that comes to mind for most users. These days it is possible to purchase a ready-to-go account on almost any online service. This opportunity is provided by many platforms and sellers on the internet. They also could have some premium features activated so it is also a way to save some money. But this method brings to the table not only benefits.
First of all, there is no guarantee of remaining the only owner of the purchased account. Of course, you get a password and other credentials. But who can guarantee that its initial creator won’t take it over or sell it to other people after some time? There is always a chance that the purchased account will be lost for one or another reason.
Moreover, many accounts on sale were leaked or even stolen. It is difficult to find decent sellers that created them on their own. So, in this case, it is also possible that the original owner will recover the account after finding out it was accessed by someone else. It might also cause some legal issues.
In the light of above, buying a registered account is definitely an option, however, it also has multiple significant disadvantages. So here comes the last and basically the best method of bypassing OTP which is explained below.
Registering with a temporary number
Using a temporary phone number for registration when there is no other option is way better than purchasing a registered account. You can be sure about being a single owner of the profile. In addition, it allows users to save some money as such a number costs less than a registered profile. Here is what to do in order to take advantage of this opportunity:
- Make a profile on sms-man.com service which provides temporary numbers for registration.
- Use one of the available payment methods in order to replenish your balance with some funds.
- Find and select the country for a cellular carrier of the temporary phone number on the homepage of the platform.
- Search for the online service you are going to register with on the same page.
- Click on the purchase button placed next to its name.
You will get the temporary number with appropriate settings for bypassing OTP right after performing the last step from the instructions above. Everything that is left to do is to use this number for creating an account on a selected website or app. In this regard, the temporary phone number isn’t too different from the regular mobile number. Just paste it on the registration form and request a one-time password, then finish registration with the received code. Simple as it is.
