With Online privacy in high demand, it’s no wonder that people don’t like huge corporations being able to link your mobile phone number to your online account. People want privacy and they don’t want to give out their mobile phone numbers. This is why I use disposable phone numbers whenever a website wants to send me a SMS Verification Code to verify my identity.
With disposable phone numbers, I am able to receive SMS online with new numbers each time. Each time, I would be granted a new online phone number for receiving SMS verification texts.
The main purpose of the disposable phone number is to help you receive SMS verification codes. This way, you won’t need to sign up using your own phone number, you can use a new number each time.
