How to bypass SMS verification for Instagram
Social media is now part of everyone’s lives. You can have an account for your business, to keep up with the news or family, or you can be an influencer: make money out of it by having a strong and influential presence online.
With the pandemic, the number of people online has increased exponentially. In 2020, around 3.6 billion people used social media in some way or another. Although people may use these kinds of platforms for a good reason or a completely innocent one, others might use them to spread false news, scam others for their money, or just to create an unhealthy and negative environment. That’s why it’s important to be able to identify those threats and that way have a safe presence online.
There is an overwhelming amount of social media websites out there. A lot of them have some particular focus. Among the most well-known social media platforms are Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Twitter, Reddit, Pinterest, Discord, TikTok, and Instagram. The last one, now owned by Meta Platforms, started as a photo-sharing service. Instagram, however, has now expanded to include videos, filters, shops, stories, live streaming, messaging features, and more.
Instagram works by allowing users to upload media that can be easily edited on the fly, add hashtags to make other users find their posts easily, and even add their geographic location. You can interact with others by liking and commenting on other users’ posts, sending direct messages, and sharing their content with others, as well as uploading your own content.
Unfortunately, not everything is a bed of roses for the giant platform. Some big controversies surround the app. For example, in 2017 a bug that allowed some users to gain access to contact information of various verified accounts was reported, resulting in a huge data breach. From a moral standpoint, some people are concerned about the efficiency of Instagram’s algorithm and advertising, with some users feeling “spied” on by the app.
So, what’s the best way to avoid all of this while enjoying the content the app has to offer you? One of the best security measures you can take is to not use your real phone for this app if you’re going to use it just for entertainment. This prevents Instagram from obtaining one of your most important pieces of data. To do this, you should get a temporary number to create your account, that way neither Instagram nor other users will have access to your real number.
