Two years from now, email sign-up might seem like an antiquated concept. Why would people give out their email address or phone number when they could use biometrics to verify who they are? No longer will businesses have to worry about their customers forgetting their passwords or having trouble inputting information on a small screen when all they have to do is swipe their finger and face recognition automatically authenticates the customer. This article explores how this might change the landscape of email sign-up forms, and how businesses can prepare themselves for this change in the coming years.
For many years, companies have required people to provide their phone numbers in order to sign up for an email list, but it seems that this trend will soon be changing. In 2022, as more and more businesses start using personal data associated with an email address to determine if the sender of an email has any relationship with the receiver, they will stop asking users to enter their phone numbers in order to sign up for an email list. While this may seem like a step backward in terms of personal privacy and security, some experts predict that this change will be beneficial overall to society, particularly because we’ll see fewer spam emails.

What is Email?
Email is a messaging system that allows you to send texts and files back and forth to other people. Think of it as traditional mail, except via computer. You don’t need to be at home or work to read your email: Email can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection. If you have ever wanted to send an email but didn’t have access to someone’s contact information, you can simply look them up by name (even if they don’t have an email address). Best of all, it is quick and easy.
Electronic mail (email or e-mail) is a method of exchanging messages (“mail”) between people using electronic devices. An email later became a ubiquitous (very widely used) communication medium, to the point that in current use, and e-mail address is often treated as a basic and necessary part of many processes in business, commerce, government, education, entertainment, and other spheres of daily life in most countries.
what is an Email Address?
Email is one of, if not, THE most commonly used means of communication. What makes email so useful is that it’s capable of sending messages through multiple channels: it can reach you through your phone, tablet, or computer. This is what makes an email address necessary for all (email-capable) devices – even though text messages and messenger apps are also popular options. And now with smartphones becoming more and more integrated into our daily lives as people start to ditch their computers for just their mobile devices for consuming content, you have to wonder whether we’ll soon be needing email addresses at all.
what is Gmail?
Gmail is more than just email; it’s also your calendar and your to-do list, and it even holds files for you. Gmail is where all of your stuff lives, and unlike what you’ll find from other email providers, we think Gmail keeps things simple while making things easier on you. It’s everything you need without all of that extra stuff you don’t. Oh, and did we mention that it comes with 15GB of free storage? That should help keep your inbox nice and tidy.
what is Gmail Address?
Google made it possible to have multiple email addresses, and still make it easy for your friends to reach you. Your primary Gmail account will show up first when people search for you, but you can select any of your other email addresses as alternate emails. When someone emails either address, all messages go into one inbox so you never miss a message from anyone. To add additional Gmail accounts: On the desktop, click Settings > Accounts. In older versions of Gmail on desktop: Click Settings > Personal info & privacy > Add another email address You’ll be prompted to add an alias if Google detects an email address that isn’t associated with your other accounts yet.
Email Sign Up Without a Phone Number
In the summer of 2022, it will be possible to sign up for email newsletters and services without a phone number attached to your account. This update will prevent email spammers from signing up with numbers that don’t belong to them, while also giving internet users more control over their privacy and data security options.
Create a Gmail on Your Android or IOS Device
If you have an Android or iPhone device, you can create a new Gmail account via the ‘Settings‘ app. This way you can bypass Google asking you for your phone number.
- Go to the Settings app from the home screen.
- Find the Mail section.
- Tap on Accounts.
- Select Add Account.
- Tap Google.
- Tap on Create Account.
- Follow the prompts and input your information. When it asks for your phone number, scroll down and hit skip.
- After that, it will ask you to review your account info. Check and make sure that everything is how you want it and then tap next.
- Lastly, accept the terms and conditions
- Go to the Settings app.
- Find the Accounts menu.
- Select Add account.
- Choose Google.
- Put in your information and when you come to the prompt asking for your phone number, scroll down and select skip.
- Then it will ask you to review your account info. If everything looks correct, tap next.
- Finally, accept the terms and conditions.
After this, you won’t have to add any further information. You can use your new email and you won’t need to verify any phone numbers.
Set Your Age to 15
This is another useful trick to bypass phone verification. If you’re 15 years or younger, Google would assume that you still don’t have a cell phone of your own. You’ll just have to set up a different birth year. To do so, you should:
NOTE: This option will only work if you sign out of your other g-mail accounts. If you don’t, it won’t ask for your birthday and assume your birthday is the same as your previous e-mails. You could also use another browser.
- Open your browser.
- Go to Gmail.
- Click on the Create Account option at the bottom of the screen.
- Choose For Myself or For Business.
- Enter your account information and a new email address and click Next.
- Set your birth year to 15 years before the current. For example, if it’s 2021, you should set your birth year to 2006.
- Leave the mobile phone bar blank and click Next.
- Agree to terms and conditions.
Note: If you see the screen asking for your phone number with no way around it, you don’t need to enter anything in the field. Instead, populate a secondary email address, add your birthday, and click the option to continue.
This does work, but make sure you keep your age under 18 or they may ask you for a phone number in the future. Also, if you want to add a security option like another e-mail, create another e-mail where you’re under 15 and add that one instead.
Use a Dummy Number
A dummy number is an online service that you can use to verify your accounts via mobile number. You can use one of the phone numbers from these websites instead of your own.
Then, Gmail will send a verifying key to this number and you’ll be able to read it and type it in.
Some of these websites are:
Keep in mind that you’ll be able to use this phone number just once. So, if you set your phone number to be your only recovery option, you might permanently lose your email account.
Can you use the Same Phone Number for Multiple Gmail Accounts?
Yes. If you’re signing up with a real number you can use it multiple times to sign up for different Gmail accounts. If you are using one of the spoofed tactics we’ve listed above you may not be able to use that phone number multiple times.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a phone number required to set up a Gmail account?
No. Because Google allows younger users to create an email account, they do not require a phone number. You may need to create a secondary email address for verification codes and protect your account, which you can do during the setup process or from Settings once your account is created.u003cbru003e
Can I secure my email address without a phone number?
Absolutely! But, you will need a secondary email address that is also secure in order to secure your account properly. You can also request verification codes and store them safely to log into unknown devices.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eFinally. If you’re using the email address on a device, try to sign in with a new device. Google will send an account access prompt to the device with your Gmail account.
According to the author, Stephanie Vozza, by 2022 customers won’t have to sign up for email subscriptions via a mobile phone number. Vozza asserts that consumers will instead rely on non-sensitive information such as their first name and zip code to sign up for your email list.
Now is an important time to think about building your email list in order to establish relationships with new customers. But before you sign up new customers and ask them for their email address it’s also important to make sure you are current on any legal changes regarding customer data privacy laws including GDPR, FERPA, PIPEDA, HIPAA & CCPA.
