How to bypass SMS verification for VK
There is a group of common social media that everyone in the States seems to have on their phones: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, which are all your standard run-of-the-mill platforms where you can consume and share content with friends, acquaintances, family and strangers, even WhatsApp and Snapchat can be added to the mix. However, there are some apps out there that are used by a great number of people that are not very known outside of their territory. One of these is the biggest social media in Eastern Europe, Vkontakte, more commonly known as VK.
VK is a Russian platform created by Pavel Durov in 2006 after graduating from St Petersburg State University. VK can be described as a social media website where you can make friends and post and share photos, videos, music and more, as well as write messages and send all kinds of media to users directly. This is one of the most popular websites in Russia, boasting over 600 million users, with 70 million daily users and 3 billion daily page views. This website is more used in Russia than Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. While VK is mainly geared toward users in Eastern Europe, it’s available in a lot of places, being offered in at least 86 languages.
VK comes with a lot of other exciting features, which helps to explain why the site is so popular. Users can upload music for others and can create and share playlists and save favorites. In VK, you can create groups for any topic, as well as manage influencer, celebrity or business pages. VK also comes with a file-sharing service, where users can upload different files to be downloaded by others publicly. The platform also synchronizes any news or updates that you post on Twitter and Facebook if you want to do so. VK’s user interface is very similar to Facebook’s, which may be a turn-off for some users, but a bonus for others. The platform also shares the ability to like the post of another user, as well as reshare it if you’d like to.
Although VK has a nice mix of features from popular apps in the US, there are some drawbacks to the service. For one, VK not only takes inspiration from Facebook’s UI, but also from its business practices. VK stores data from user interactions, messages and posts. The company then sells this data to advertisement companies to show personalized ads. VK had user information leaked in 2016, resulting in data like usernames, locations, phone numbers, full names, email addresses and passwords being compromised. It’s worth noting that the passwords were stored in plain text on the platform’s database without any kind of encryption. Additionally, some information (like images) is stored on the platform even if you delete your account.
Another con is that it may be hard finding people you know in real life having or wanting to create an account on VK. However, using VK may also be interesting to you for many reasons. For example, if you have an acquaintance or a friend from Eastern Europe, or you want to be in contact with the culture, you can sign up and create an account pretty quickly. If you have a business, product or service that you would like to sell internationally, you may be interested on marketing your service to VK users, as well as studying trends and what’s popular over there. If this site sounds interesting, then you may want to try testing the waters. Creating an account with a virtual number is a great way to do so, saving you the trouble of using your real number if you’re interested in keeping an important part of your privacy.
