Clubhouse requiring phone number usage

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Is there a workaround for giving out my phone number on clubhouse? I am not really comfortable with giving out my cell phone number online. I try getting one of those Wi-Fi numbers, but you have to purchase the upgrade to receive verification codes. The one I am using is called text now. Google voice already requires an existing number to login with so that's not an option. Could someone possibly get up with the developers and possibly fix up other ways to login and create accounts on clubhouse?

I've run into the same issue. I use an app called Talkatone because of a lack of a cell phone. It's connected to my MS Teams account. However, Clubhouse won't accept it. That's what I ran into. But I agree with you, if I had a cell phone, I wouldn't feel for lack of a better word, safe giving it out on the net myself. But, I have a different issue, in not having a cell phone or resources to obtain one. So, I can still sympathize with you.
I hope that we can create accounts by email for example, once this opens up to the public.

Exactly. I think creating accounts by email is better then using our number because what if there were more people like us that don't give there number out over the internet.

both are insecure to a a point and not all of us have email. I'd say this is fine. I'v eused google fo rwhat's app so dunno why clubhouse won't work with a FV number.
