Mandatory identification from June 1
Dear users! We hereby inform you that Federal Law of the Russian Federation of July 29, 2017 No. 245-FZ “On Amending the Federal Law ‘On Communications’” enters into force on June 1, 2018.
Based on this law, it will be necessary to provide reliable information (passport details) about the subscriber to the telecommunications operator. We understand that it is contrary to many purposes of using our service, but this is the only way we can continue to provide our services.
June 1, 2018 identification for all users buying Russian numbers will be introduced. Most of the numbers will be given to users who provided passport details; a smaller part will be given to those who have been identified via WebMoney or PayPal. Be sure to go through an identification process in advance, since it will take longer than usual starting on June 1.

Chinese numbers will be available in unlimited quantities without identification.
Our actions to normalize the situation:
- We are developing additional functionality allowing SIM card vendors to sell numbers through our service.
- We are looking for services for integration in different countries.
Thank you for understanding!
