I hate the test authentication for accounts...

Hi,

I actually registered a long time ago but was never able to authenticate because, believe it or not, I still don't have a cell phone. I was finally able to do it due to a phone that I sometimes have for work. Anyway, there are probably a number of luddites and frugal folks who can't use the site because of this. I'm in IT and I've actually never seen a site which only has this means of verification. I wish that would change. Thanks.

Hi farrelli,

It's good that you brought this up. @VSadmin , is there a solution for this?

Hi there! You should also have the option to verify your account through email, not just through a mobile device. Perhaps you missed the email verification notice (maybe your email account blocked it or sent it through to your junk mail), but there is always the option to verify your account through email.

Sorry to hear that you had a hard time getting set up, but glad that you were able to use your work phone and get it sorted out. Please reach out if you have any other questions or concerns!

Cheers,

Erik
