    I made an instagram account a few days ago and everything was fine. I logged in today and it asks me to verify my phone number. Is this normal? I didn't follow or anything. I just made the account , email verified and uploaded a profile picture and a small bio. Why is instagram doing this to me?

    I think it is just the way things are heading now in social media. For example, I was unable to create a yahoo mail account yesterday without phone verification

    It could your previous actions or different device/IP.

    PV's are very inexpensive. Either use a friends/family number or buy one for a dollar.
