Why do I need to give you my real phone number?
We use your phone number in two ways. One is to make sure you are a real person. And two, we will send you the verification codes from sites that require them. You just need to text us back the code you receive and we will do the rest. If you don't provide a real number we can't ensure your accounts will all be created correctly.
Why did I get a proxy email address?
The proxymail address just helps us make sure your accounts can be created without any snags because it is a fresh email that has never been used anywhere before. You don't really have to think about it as emails will land in your normal inbox anyhow.
