Mainly, people use their own phone numbers to make calls, send and receive SMS, get mobile Internet and so on. This “so on” includes one very important option – connecting phone numbers to social network profiles, banking apps, games and other apps.
This feature helps people to make their accounts safe, but there are some troubles: your phone number can be stolen. That’s why people designed virtual phone numbers to receive SMS.
What is a virtual phone number for SMS?
Disposable phone number – exactly the normal number, but without a carrier. It means that this number has no owners. It can be shared between groups of people.
To make you fully understand this topic I will give an example. You can buy a phone number for 1 service to receive 1 SMS from this service. This message will contain OTP for your sign up procedure. Other men will be able to get exactly the same number for other services. That’s why these numbers are cheap.
Why do you need a virtual phone number?
The answer is easy, I have a few reasons to use virtual phone number everywhere exclude bank apps:
- Anonymity: nobody will have an opportunity to track your activity by phone number.
- Safety: hackers won’t get access to your accounts anywhere if they get access to your phone number
- Spam: as we know, big companies sell their databases to marketing companies. If your disposable phone number were to be sold, you won’t receive lots of spam messages and calls.
That’s why you should go to every account and change your phone number to a disposable one.
