We have always intend­ed alwaysdata’s reg­is­tra­tion process to be as sim­ple and fast as pos­si­ble. We don’t ask you to pay — or even enter a cred­it card num­ber — and the cre­ation of your account is com­plet­ed in real time. In less than a minute, you have an account that is usable imme­di­ate­ly.

This sim­plic­i­ty attracts not only legit­i­mate clients, but also numer­ous clients con­duct­ing illic­it activ­i­ties (spam, phish­ing, etc.). These unde­sir­able accounts are becom­ing more and more numer­ous and, today, have led us to begin tak­ing new secu­ri­ty mea­sures.

From now on, we will send a val­i­da­tion code via SMS dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion process, which you must enter before pro­ceed­ing. This minor incon­ve­nience for the major­i­ty of good-faith clients will dras­ti­cal­ly lim­it abuse of the
sys­tem. Because we pre­fer to spend our time improv­ing our ser­vice rather than chas­ing down fraud­u­lent accounts 🙂
