I tried to create a youtube account. Unfortunately it required a gmail account which requires cellphone verification. Even though I opted out of the cellphone verification checkbox (instead went for the Captcha Verification option), the second page of gmail account creation tried to force cell phone verification. How do I get around this privacy problem? To achieve even the most basic human rights requirements for anonymity, a cellphone verification brutally violates that. tl;dr How do create a youtube account with cell phone verification even though Youtube forces that requirement upon me?
