VK is a famous social media network and it is a competitor to Facebook. This website is specifically famous in Russia and most of its users are Russian. In order to have an account in this website, you will need to take some steps to complete the registration process. Also, in order to create an account, you will also need to enter your phone number. In this tutorial, I will show you how you can create an account step-by-step and how you can have a VK account without phone.
VK account registration
In order to create a Facebook account, you won’t need to enter your phone number in the registration process. But after you have created your account, you can later enter your phone number as a part of personal information details. In order to add your phone number to your Facebook account, you will need to add your phone number to your profile. Then Facebook will send a verification code to your phone number and your number will be activated.
If by any chance, you forget your Facebook password, you can simply ask for a new password through your phone number. This is one of the advantages of adding your phone number to your social media network accounts. On Facebook, you can also choose to hide your phone number from the people who view your profile.
On VK, the story is somehow the same but the difference is that you cannot choose not to enter your phone number when you want to create VK account. In fact, you will need to enter your phone number in the first steps of registration and you will need to verify your account with your phone number.
