The Best Email Providers That Don’t Need a Phone Number


Email is a staple of both business and personal communication, but an increasing number of providers require a phone number in order to create an account. While this could be due to altruistic motivations, which we'll discuss shortly, there are a variety of reasons why a person might want to create an gmail sign up without a phone number, including personal data concerns.   Because phone numbers are unique, they can be used as personal identifiers. On the one hand, this means they can be used to protect accounts and confirm user identities. Attaching them to online accounts, on the other hand, can result in intrusive data collection, a significant digital footprint, and the risk of data breaches.   In recent years, there have been numerous large-scale data breaches, the most notable of which came from an email provider, in which the details of at least 500 million Yahoo! accounts, including, you guessed it, people's phone numbers, were stolen.   Even if you're not concerned about a data breach, it's always a good idea to have the option of setting up email without a phone number, especially if this is your second or third email account. As a result, we've reviewed some of the best services for creating a new email address without a phone number. We'll look at why a phone number might be useful, the criteria we used to evaluate the email providers, and an individual review of each provider down below. More:
