    I started to register with Discord but got a message saying “Something’s Going on Here. We’ve detected something out of the ordinary going on. To continue using Discord, we will need you to verify you’re human.”

    They asked for my phone number. However, I checked their privacy policy and it says nothing about what they do with your phone number so I was unwilling to give it.

    I contacted their tech support who were not very helpful. I was using a VPN so it could possibly have been that, so I tried re-registering with it disabled. I got the same problem.

    Tech support then said it was a feature, not a bug.

    I mentioned this on Twitter and Jimmy replied saying:

    “Weird. Sorry about that. It isn’t a setting that we set because I really don’t want anyone’s phone number to be required for anything!”

    Has anyone else had to give Discord their phone number to register?

    Oddly, I’m getting email notifications of chats on Discord but still can’t log in without giving my number.
