A Microsoft account is the email address and password that you use for Outlook.com, Hotmail, Office, OneDrive, Skype, Xbox, and Windows. If you create a Microsoft account, you can use any email address as the username for it, including from Outlook.com, Yahoo! or Gmail. How to make a new microsoft account without phone number?
Method 1. Creating account using your phone number and sms activation service.
You can create Microsoft account using a virtual phone number.
Method 2. Clearing your history and changing your IP.
Microsoft uses both your previous usage data and your public IP address to determine whether or not you are abusing their services. If Microsoft system considers that the same person tries to create several accounts within a short period of time, they will be marked as suspicious and, therefore, each additional account will require a unique cell phone number.
Step 1: Clear your browsing history
If you are prompted to enter your cell phone number when you create a new microsoft account , the first thing to do is to clear your browsing history, cookies, etc. And try again. Even if you’re using a different Internet connection with a different IP address, Microsoft’s system can tell from your browsing history if you recently created a new account and will flag you as suspicious. Alternatively, if you want to keep your browsing history, you can use a different web browser.
Step 2: Use a different IP address
If after clearing your browsing history, Microsoft still requires you to verify your cell phone number to create an account. You’ll need to try creating an account from a different public IP address. Below I’ve listed a few ways you can accomplish this. Note that you may need to clear your browsing history, as mentioned above, in addition to using a different IP address.
This can be done using:
- Your cell phone’s 4G connection
- VPN or proxy service
Step 3: Create new microsoft account without phone number
Go to the microsoft home page, click “Sign In” and follow the instructions.
Method 3. Using several times your personal phone number.
Before we continue, it’s worth noting that the easiest way to create a Microsoft account without a phone number is to add a phone number and then delete it after creating the account. But at the same time, it is worth noting that these accounts are at risk and can be deleted very quickly. This allows you to use the same phone number over and over again to create multiple accounts. If, however, you don’t have a phone number to use, read about alternative methods to bypass the phone requirement entirely.
