How to create a Google, YouTube and Gmail account without a phone number
Google is a unique company that gave us not only the fastest search engine, but also the ability to use Gmail and the video service YouTube.
More often than not, when you create a Gmail or Youtube account, you will need a phone number. Now it's a prerequisite for registration. But what if your number is already being used in another account, or if you prefer to remain private?
Today, we're going to tell you a few ways to get around Google's mobile confirmation requirement, including the ability to use a virtual number.
Method 1: Create an account on the Android mobile device
If your mobile device runs on Android, we are ready to offer a working algorithm for creating an account without a phone number.
1. Open the "Settings" tab
2. Find "Accounts" and open it.
3. Select "Add an account" and from the list of accounts, select Google
4. You will see a workspace where you can enter your existing email or create a new account.
5. At the very bottom, find "Create Account".
6. Then select from the options offered: for yourself / for business.
7. Enter your date of birth, gender.
8. Choose an email address from those offered by the service, or make up your own.
9. Think of a password and enter it twice.
10. After that you will see a window where you will be asked to enter your phone number. There will be a "Skip" button in the lower left corner.
11. Then the terms of service will appear, where you can check if all the data is entered correctly.
This completes the procedure. The account is created and ready to use.
Advantages of this method:
- high speed of account creation;
- can be done from a mobile device.
The disadvantages of this method:
- your Google account is completely unprotected;
- If you lose your email password, you won't be able to recover it.
Despite the fact that the method is very working, it is not entirely reliable and safe.
Method 2. Set the age less than necessary
According to Google's rules, accounts of people under the age of 18 do not need phone verification, as they may not have one.
This is one of the easiest methods to create a Google, Gmail, Youtube account.
- Open your browser and navigate to Gmail.
- Select "Create an account".
- Fill in all the required fields and click "Next".
- At the point where the platform asks for your age, set it at the point where it looks like you are 15 years old or younger.
- Do not fill out the cell phone number box.
Done. This method also works, but unfortunately it has the same disadvantages as the first one: your account cannot be secured.
Method 3. Buy a virtual number
This algorithm is absolutely legal and safe. It is also the most effective. If you really need an email that you will use for a long time, it is better to link it to your phone number. We'll tell you more about how to do this.
There are a huge number of services that allow you to get a virtual number to receive sms for use in registration on a variety of platforms: online stores, dating sites, social networks, etc. Are all of these services proven and honest?
