Free email address with mobile verification

I use to use Protonmail but they have introduced a mobile verification. Does anyone know where I can get a free email address without mobile verification?

Gmail and hotmail (outlook.com) both work for me, still, usually, as long as I'm not on a VPN. I occasionally go to the library or a coffee shop or something, turn off my VPN, and sign up for a bunch of burner accounts to save for later.

Would be interested in other suggestions, too, though.

Can't the coffee shop still track you by your device MAC address? Are there still any sites around without mobile auth?

Yeah, the coffee shop could log that.

Neither of them asked me for a mobile number, yahoo mail does. The bigger problem is that other sites (Twitter, for example) that you might sign up for with one of these burner emails will want a phone number.

Some of them will call you with an automated message rather than texting. If you can get to not-quite-public phone, such as at the library or in a university building or something, that's a way around it. It's tough, though.

https://www.gmx.com asks for SMS or email.

The default MTU size is 1500 on many connections. Try lowering it down to 1472, 1450, 1380 until the websites start opening again on your PC.
Remember, you need to restart your PC for the changes to take effect.

I have been using mail.com and I am satisfied with their services. Adding a mobile number is optional.

There's mailinator, too, for receive-only email addresses. They have a few alt domains, too, in case someone blocks @mailinator.com. Just put in [email protected] (or one of the alts) and then go to mailinator.com to check.
 
mail.com or Yandex mail don't ask for phone numbers. I usually just use one of those throwaway "10 minute/temporary" email services for websites I don't care about though

I'm using a VPN to Russia for the following below:

Mail.com keeps coming up with an error when I try to setup an account.

Yandex emails seem to stay in the draft folder when I try to send emails (sometimes I get an error when using TOR). I didn't test receiving emails.

I think I'll set up a shitload of email accounts (hotmail/gmail) when I travel around Asia this year. No ID required for a prepaid sim in most 3rd world countries. I would have to use a VPN back to my country tho cause I know when I change country, it will ask for my prepaid number again. I already bought a cheap smartphone years ago from a market which can't be traced back to me. Philippines prepaid numbers are valved for 1 year.

I believe there is a chance in the future that everything we do today online can be traced back to you if we don't hide our ID today! Everything you say will be classed as hate speech as we are already seeing!

Is Tutanota trustworthy or is it some covert operation to fool people into submiting their sensitive information into a monitored platform? It's based in Germany and there is an EU badge on their site which doesn't rise my trust.

What are you looking for?
Do you focus more on stability of service or more on privacy?

Countermail is what I recommend, once your account is set up, pay via bitcoin and then activate the usb two factor authentication key which requires a usb to log into your account. I've been using them for about 10 years.
