Every fan of unique fashion should have Depop in their hands. This social e-commerce will connect you with plenty of other fashion crazes to sell and buy unique goods, from preloved to designer items. With a peer-to-peer system, you will be able to find other users with similar styles and tastes to you.
Phone Verification for Depop
Prepare an active mobile phone number to use for Depop. You will need it to go through a phone verification, a necessary step to get approved by the Depop system. There is no way to bypass this step. Even using a bogus phone to trick it is not possible. This process will happen again later every once in a while.
Why Does Depop Require Phone Verification?
Confirming Your Identity
Depop needs to make sure that each registered user is an actual human being with a clear identity. Thus, the system can recognize you as the account owner.
Preventing Scammers and Bots
Bots and other malicious systems cannot go through a verification step. By mandating this step, Depop can effectively filter out malicious accounts in its community.
Shipment and Invoice Credentials
Your mobile number is also necessary for many things regarding your transactions, including invoices, payment reports, and even shipping inquiries.
When Does Depop Ask for Phone Number Verification?
The first time a phone verification is needed is right after you finish filling out the registration form. You will not be able to start exploring Depop before completing your verification.
Trying to Log In
The two-factor authentication will also require you to verify your phone number on every login. Without activating this feature, you will need the verification only if you log in from a new device or place.
Gaining access back to your account after a system error or forgetting your password is easy and quick. Another round of phone verification will settle it in just a minute.
Payment and Transactions
Sometimes Depop will ask for one more phone verification when you make an unusual transaction. This is for the system to make sure that your transaction is truly intentional and valid.
Important Delivery Notice
Depop will report your delivery progress from time to time so you can keep track of your fashion items. While most notifications will come only on the Depop app, some important ones may also come to your mobile inbox.
Phone Number Options for Depop Verification
Your Main Mobile Phone
Using your main phone number for e-commerce communication and data might not be ideal because of data safety and privacy concerns.
Another Plan on A Dual-SIM Phone
Having another SIM card on your phone may keep your privacy with your main number. Unfortunately, it is not cheap to keep two mobile numbers active.

Felicia Darcy, Fashion Vlogger
Selling shoes I made on Depop is satisfying. However, I still need a break from all the buyers contacting me all the time. Since using MySecondLine, I can turn it off anytime I need it without having to block my communication line with friends and family.
