What is PVA

Dear Friends, I’m launching a new blog to help my subscribers to see into the nuances of Phone Verified Accounts (PVA). As a first step, let’s find out what is PVA and what does it serve for.

For some time past all primary social networks, such as Facebook, Tinder, Instagram, Gmail, MeetMe, etc., introduced mobile phone verification process via SMS codes. This is a least-evil anti-spam solution. How does it work? For instance, you want to create a new account on Facebook, Instagram or any other social network and you are asked to provide your personal phone number to receive SMS verification code. Then the social network (MeetMe, Gmail, etc.) blocks your account until you fill in the verification code, sent via SMS. If verification code is valid, the phone number is assigned to a newly created account on Facebook, Gmail, etc. After this procedure (Phone Verified Accounts. PVA) you are considered as a PVA account holder at MeetMe, Instagram or any analogous social network.
