Make the difference, don´t ask me for my number phone
Just don´t be as the others! make the difference, I don´t share with you nor with anymore personal data, I disagree with you, ask me for sensible data if i want to use your mail, no, no, no again. Just Brave and Tor don´t really ask for my personal data. What! Would you grow my "suspicacia"??? Be care with that! I prefer not use you mail, Is that your relay out goal? (sic).

At the beginning, Vivaldi allowed the access to all its services without it.
The increasing of SPAM forced the decision to use an authentication method to keep those behaviours away.
Since then, Mail and Blog are tied up to a Phone Number verification.

@PepeCabron ,to use the forum and sync, you only need your nickname and your email for registration, it only requires the 2FA with your phone number, if you want to use also Vivaldi's blog and email as well. No private data is needed more than this.
