You might know what a virtual number is and how it works, and now you are looking for a program using which you can get a virtual number for free . If you do not have much information about virtual numbers, you can refer to the article below to learn more!
Telegram and WhatsApp Virtual SIMs
There are many applications using which you can create free virtual numbers, but it is not that easy to create one using many of these apps, and even many of them may not finally provide you with any number after going through several steps. You may spend hours testing different applications, and in the end no number might be created at all, or the number provided to you might be blocked or reported from the beginning.
Therefore, if you need to have a virtual number immediately or if you want to use a virtual number for some important work, we do not recommend that you use free virtual numbers because the process of getting it is both time consuming and uncertain and the number that you will eventually get may be unusable. As a result, for important and necessary cases, it is better that you buy the numbers from reputable virtual number providing websites. However, in this article, we want to introduce you to 3 free virtual number applications. We have tested these apps and successfully managed to get free virtual numbers from each of these apps that we are going to introduce in the following.
Get a Free Virtual Number from Temp Number
Temp Number is an application that has a number of virtual phone numbers from the United States and European countries, and you can use these numbers for free to create an account in websites and messengers. Creating a virtual number in this program is very easy.

In the next step, you enter the inbox of that virtual number. In fact, after creating an account in a website or application using this number,you will receive the authentication code in this section. (For example, we created an account in Telegram using the virtual number given to us by this program and received the authentication code from this section.)
Note: As we said, the number that you get with this method has been given to other users before you. For this reason, you may notice that an account has been created on the same platform you want to register in (for example, Telegram) and even the two-step verification has been enabled for the account. In this case, you will not be able to create an account in that platform using that virtual phone number, because you will never have access to the second code.
