Unlike earlier, Gmail accounts now require phone verification while creating a new one. WhatsApp, requires its users to verify the mobile numbers they use to send and receive messages as well. Some users, do not wish to share or use their private numbers while creating these accounts. Such users, tend to use virtual numbers for their account verification.
Virtual numbers are numbers one can find online without having a SIM card for that number. People can use numbers from any country without actually living there. So, if you are looking for numbers to verify your Gmail or WhatsApp account, you can use the websites below. These websites provide Swedish phone numbers which you can use to verify your account.
You can begin by opening Gmail or WhatsApp and begin registering your new account. When asked to enter a mobile number for verification, enter one of the numbers you find on the website. Swedish numbers have the country code +46, so ensure you change the default country code before continuing.
Next, the website or app will ask for the unique verification code sent to that number. By clicking on that number on the website, you can see the messages received by that number. You will find the message with the code at the top of the list. Enter the code and you are all set with a verified user account.
The websites listed below, provide their numbers for free and are changed on a periodic basis. You don’t have to register or subscribe or complete any offers to use them. But using the free numbers, comes with a small setback. Your accounts are prone to be accessed by anyone. This is because the messages received by the free numbers can be seen by anyone using the website.
As you may know, Google sends account recovery codes to the registered mobile number and WhatsApp gives account access to the newly registered device. This means that anyone can hack into your accounts and access your private data. Also, Gmail sometimes blocks numbers that have been used many times to create accounts.
To avoid that, you can buy a private number from one of the websites. They come at a cheap price and ensure safety of your account. To buy a private number, all you need to do is send an email. Use the details in the website and request for a private number by mail. The messages received on this number can be read only by you, making your account and data safe.
Some of these websites also provide numbers from countries other than Sweden, such as the US, China, UK and many others. You can request for numbers from other countries in case you don’t find them.
You can also buy bulk phone numbers in case you want to create multiple accounts for your usage. Here’s the list of sites providing virtual numbers. If the numbers don’t work, try reporting the problem and it will be sorted.
