Dear readers, we have launched this new blog to update information about the accounts verified by Telephone (PVA for its acronym in English).
To explain better what a PVA account is, we will give you a review and example of how everything works now.
The main social networks, such as Faceboog, Tinder, Meetme and even email services such as Gmail or Hotmail request verification through SMS codes as a way to solve spam. Its operation is very simple:
Take for example Facebook:
Previously it was enough with an email to register us but now for example directly asks for your phone number to enter the social network so what we do step by step is:
1- Enter your phone number in addition to your name
2- Receive an SMS code that must enter the platform
3- Once received, the profile that has been validated by SMS is unlocked
4- Your phone number is validated for the account you just created
Immediately after the procedure, you are considered the account holder. The problem often has to do with the management of data privacy, but that is another point that each must take into account.
