How to create Signal account without using personal phone number

Guide

Step 1: create Twilio account

Go to https://www.twilio.com/ and sign up (please consider using my referral link so we both get a 10 USD credit on account upgrade).

Step 2: create “Forward voice” bin (used for phone call verification)

Heads-up: don’t forget to replace +12345678901 with your mobile phone number.

Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/twiml-bins, click +, set friendly name to Forward voice and paste snippet below in TwiML text area.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Response>
  <Dial>
    +12345678901
  </Dial>
</Response>

Step 3: create “Forward messaging” bin (used for SMS verification)

Heads-up: don’t forget to replace +12345678901 with your mobile phone number.

Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/twiml-bins, click +, set friendly name to Forward messaging and paste snippet below in TwiML text area.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Response>
  <Message to="+12345678901">
    {{From}}: {{Body}}
  </Message>
</Response>

Step 4: buy phone number

Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers/search and buy phone number.

Step 5: configure phone number

Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers/incoming, click phone number, set “A Call Comes In” to “TwiML Bin” / “Forward voice”, set “A Message Comes In” to “TwiML Bin” / “Forward messaging” and click “Save”.
