The popular social network Vkontakte several years ago tightened the rules for registering accounts. Now, in order to create a page, the user must specify a valid mobile phone number, which will subsequently receive a message with a code.
Only after entering the received digital value will it be possible to create an account and use it. However, there are a number of effective ways to register in a contact without a phone number. I will tell you more about them in this article.

1. How to register in VK without a phone
Vkontakte registration follows a certain template, and the main stage is binding to the user's mobile phone number. It is not possible to skip it, since otherwise the page will not be created.
But the system can be deceived, and for this there are at least two ways:
- using a virtual number;
- indication of a valid Facebook page.
Each of the listed registration options provides for a specific algorithm of actions, after completing which you can count on a quick account creation and access to all the options of the Vkontakte social network.
1.1. Registration in VK using a virtual number
You can go through the registration procedure in social networks using a virtual number for receiving SMS. To do this, it is best to use the recognized international service Pinger (the official website is https://wp.pinger.com).
Step-by-step registration in the service looks like this:
1. Go to the site, select 'TEXTFREE' in the upper right corner of the screen.
2. Next, select one of the options offered: download the application to your mobile phone or use the Internet version of the service. I choose WEB:
3. We go through a simple registration procedure in the service, after pressing the virtual button 'Sign Up'. In the window that appears, specify the username, password, age, gender, email address, highlighted letter abbreviation ('captcha').
4. If all the previous steps have been performed correctly, click on the arrow in the lower right corner of the screen, after which a window with several phone numbers will appear. We choose the number we like.
5. After pressing the arrow, a window will appear in which received messages will be displayed.
It is always possible to view the selected virtual phone number in the 'Options' tab. When registering in VK using the considered method, the USA should be entered in the country selection field (the international code of this country starts with '+1'). Next, we enter a virtual mobile number and receive a code for it with confirmation of registration. Subsequently, a Pinger account may be needed if the password is lost, so you should not lose access to the service.
At the moment, creating an account using the virtual number service is considered one of the fastest and most effective methods of registration in social networks. Its main advantage over other options is anonymity, because a virtual phone number cannot be tracked or proven to be used by a specific person. At the same time, the main disadvantage of this method is the impossibility of restoring access to the page in case of loss of access to Pinger.
IMPORTANT! Many Internet users have difficulties in registering with foreign virtual telephony services. This is due to the fact that many providers block such resources in order to prevent illegal activities in the vastness of the 'world wide web'. In order to avoid blocking, there are several options, the main of which is considered to change the IP address of a computer to a foreign one. In addition, you can use anonymizers, for example, the Tor browser or the ZenMate plugin.
If you are having difficulty using Pinger, there are a huge number of services on the Internet that provide virtual phone numbers (for example, Twilio, TextNow, CountryCod.org, etc.). A number of similar paid services with a simplified registration procedure are also actively developing. All this allows us to assert that virtual telephony has solved the problem for many users of how to register in VK without a (real) number.
1.2. Registration in VK via Facebook
The social network Vkontakte is one of the most advertised Russian sites, which is in demand far beyond the borders of the Russian Federation. The desire of the owners of this resource to cooperate with other world-famous social networks, in particular with Facebook, is quite justified. As a result, the owners of the page in the mentioned service have the possibility of simplified registration of Vkontakte. For those who do not want to 'shine' their data, this is a unique chance how to register in VK without a phone and deceive the system.
The algorithm of actions here is quite simple and the first thing to do is to use an anonymizer. It is best to go to the 'Chameleon' service, since the start page already contains links to all social networks or dating sites popular in Russia. This resource allows you to go to pages in Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte, Mamba, even if they are blocked by the site administration.
Many people will naturally ask why they need to use anonymizers. The Vkontakte social network automatically recognizes from which country you entered the registration page. This is how the registration procedure looks like for residents of Russia and most post-Soviet countries:
And this is how the same page looks, but if you go to it outside the Russian Federation:
In the lower right corner of the screen, there is an unobtrusive Login via button Facebook. Click on it, after which the window for entering an email address and password is instantly displayed:
After filling in the fields, you will go to your own Vkontakte page, which you can subsequently edit at your discretion. To implement the presented method, a page in 'Facebook' is required, but the procedure for creating an account in it does not require entering a mobile phone number (only an email account). Facebook registration is one of the most understandable, as a result of which it will not cause any particular difficulties even for an unprepared computer user.
According to recent rumors, the foreign analogue of Vkontakte is going to tighten the rules for using the resource, so the described method may soon become outdated. But for now, 'Facebook' remains an available way of how to register in VK via mail without a phone number. Its advantages are quite obvious – anonymity and simplicity. Also, it takes a minimum of time to create a page, especially if you already have a Facebook account. The method has only one drawback: it lies in the impossibility of recovering data lost by the user (password for entering the account).
1.3. Registration in VK via mail
Many users are concerned about the question of how to register in VK via mail. Previously, one e-mail was enough to create an account, but since 2012, the management of the social network has introduced a mandatory rule for binding to a mobile phone. Now, before specifying an e-mail box, a window pops up asking you to enter a mobile number, which will receive a message with a personal code within 1-2 minutes.
- During the registration process, VK requires you to enter a phone number
Previously, many users, instead of a mobile phone, indicated a landline 11-digit number, launched the 'Let the robot call' function, and then created a page using the code suggested by the computer. The main advantage of this method was the ability to register on Vkontakte free of charge and an unlimited number of times. In practice, it turned out that an infinite number of pages were registered on the same landline number, from which spam, offensive messages or threats were sent. Due to complaints from users, the administration of the social network was forced to abandon the option to create an account via landline phones, leaving the ability to receive the code only on mobile networks.
Whoever claims anything, today it is unrealistic to register in VK via mail without a mobile phone number. At the same time, full access should be provided to the e-mail box, since it provides an additional opportunity to recover a lost password or receive up-to-date news about innovations in the social network. Email may also be needed when the page is hacked. By sending a request to the technical support service, a letter will promptly come to the mailbox with instructions for restoring access.
To summarize, it should be noted that the topic of how to register on Vkontakte for free, without a real mobile phone number and entering personal information, is rapidly gaining momentum. Increasingly, hundreds of programs appear on the Internet to hack or bypass the established registration rules. Most of them are spam or malicious viruses that are not helpful in solving the problem. The VK administration is making great efforts to reduce the number of fake accounts and protect its users. As a result, only the two listed methods of creating pages without specifying a personal phone number are considered effective.
