How To Rent A Virtual Number To Receive Sms


More and more online services require you to provide your cell phone number when registering. From the security point of view it makes sense: SMS confirmation significantly reduces the risk of hacking your account and strengthens its security. But there are situations when this restriction affects users. For example, when creating an additional account on the same resource.

Usually we only own one or two SIM cards. If their numbers are already in the database of the site, you may have problems with registration. What to do in such cases? You can give up the idea or beg your relatives and friends to let us use their phones. But there is a simpler way – rent a fake phone number for verification.

What is a virtual phone number for SMS?

A VoIP or virtual phone number is a traditional phone number, but which is in the cloud. In simple words, this phone number is only available online and does not require a physical SIM card. 

Virtual numbers can be used from almost any device with Internet access, from tablets to computers or laptops. The functions of a virtual number depend on its type, they can receive SMS or even send them, and certain types can be used to receive or make calls.

But most online boards and marketplaces require you to verify your phone number to register and publish your ad. What to do? You can use a virtual number to do this. The technology works so that this number replaces your real number. That way, you can register freely and the calls won’t reach you.
