How to bypass SMS phone verification for Discord
Discord is a platform that works with VoIP, instant messaging and digital distribution, allowing users to make phone and video calls, send text messages and media files. This can also be done through “servers”, which are collections of both chat and voice channels that can be accessed through an invite link. This is the core feature that makes Discord such a popular choice for keeping up with friends, family, coworkers or professors at college.
This platform came to life when one of its creators noticed there weren’t any really good VoIP platforms for planning and working out strategies with his team during online games. He decided to create it himself and so, the developing process for Discord began. The main target of the team was to have a minimal impact on the device performance, so games didn’t have any stuttering and communication could be instantaneous. Even though the company started with that idea, they didn’t purposely make any marketing targeting a specific audience, Discord became widely known and used in gaming communities, as well as tournaments and even many subreddits.
It’s important to stress that Discord does not cater exclusively to gamers and Redditors. There are a lot of institutions that use this platform for academic purposes, from professors that use it to impart classes and share academic activities to their students, to research and study groups. Discord groups can also be found amongst neighborhoods, businesses, hobbyists and pretty much anything that requires group communication.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the app got a massive user increase with 350 million registered users in 2021. Because of this enormous growth, Discord decided to become a more inclusive company, changing its slogan several times, branding and interface. As with many changes in branding made by bigger companies, this move received some backlash from regular users.
Although Discord has more to offer than most similar companies, it has been involved in its own share of controversies. Most of these, of course, revolve around privacy and user protection on servers. Harassment by others because of religion, race and politics is commonly cited on the platform. It also became popular on the alt-right and neo-nazi communities and, due to this, Discord banned and deleted some users and channels and now is “focused on protecting users from spams, scams, and fraud”.
Because of this, it’s normal that some users don’t want their personal information on this platform. However, it’s mandatory that users enter their phone number in order to be part of the Discord community, so what can you do if you don’t want to give your number? Easy, get a virtual number.
