In this era, a phone number plays a role more than a tool for calls and texts alone. Your phone number plays a role as your ID card to indicate your unique identification, so your phone number is usually used to verify your identification as you sign up for accounts on websites or apps. If the websites or apps get hacked or suffer from being breached, your personal information will be leaked as well. After all, it’s increasingly frequent for us to hear news about hacking incidents now. Therefore, your personal mobile number should be well protected from being used as an online verification tool.
It’s annoying and risky to receive marketing calls if your phone number gets known by more people. Do you always receive ad calls marketing the products or services that you don’t need? How exactly does your phone number get known by sales? Your private phone number is leaked just because it’s correlated with your online accounts. Once one account is hacked or the websites or apps that you create accounts on deliberately leaking your information, your phone number will surely be exposed to more people. That’s a disaster.
Luckily for you, there are still many ways to bypass this and create a new Gmail without the use of your phone number. So, if for some reason you don’t want to enter your phone number, you may use one of these solutions.
