Hi all, in this article we will explain how to create a Walmart account without a phone number. Why do services even ask for sms-verification? How does it help and protect company users?
What sms-verification is and why it is needed
sms-verification is one way to protect your account from intruders. How does it work? You have probably already experienced registration/authorisation by phone number. The services will remember your devices and no sms verification is required. In case you are trying to log in to your account from a new device, in addition to your password you also need to enter the code from the sms. The service generates and sends you a new code. This is the sms-verification method (one of the 2FA methods).
It is, of course, necessary to protect your accounts. However, it has its disadvantages and we will talk about that below.
Disadvantages of sms-verification
Sometimes we need to create an account on a service that we don’t really need in the future. Or when we don’t want to leave our main phone number, we don’t want to receive spam on our phone and email. In this case, this method of protection will only prevent us from quickly registering an account with the service. However, there is always a way out, one of which is to use sms receiving services.
Next, using Walmart account registration as an example, we will explain how to use the sms receiving services. How they work.
