How to create a VK account without a mobile number
In the Facebook social network, we can bypass without giving our mobile and easily create a new account. After that, we can add our phone number to get a verification code for the Facebook password reset purpose. But in Vkontakte vhod ru we can’t bypass without giving our mobile number while registering a new VK profile. But there are three tricks to sign up the VK account without adding a phone number.
- Signup VK by using Facebook Account
- Use virtual phone number for verification
- Use your secondary mobile number
But I don’t suggest using a virtual phone number and sometimes it doesn’t work out. You cant signup vk account with an email address alone so use your mobile number for vk account recovery if in case your account is locked or hacked by an unknown person.
