Fake-SMS

A simple command line tool using which you can skip phone number based SMS verification by using a temporary phone number that acts like a proxy.

Latest update : The tool no longer uses upmasked.com, as the service went down. We are using another provider which provides more phone numbers across more countries. Make sure you pull the main branch before compiling.

Features:

  • Written in Go-1.15 (with modules support enabled)
  • Provides an interactive CLI, which is easier to use.
  • Provides a local file based DB to save and manage a list of fake phone numbers to help you remember and reuse.

Requirements:

  • Go programming language – 1.15+

To build:

The build process is simple, it is just like building any other Go module. Follow the steps below:

export GOBIN=$PWD/bin
go install

This will build the binary and place it in bin/.
You can also consider using the pre-built binary which is available under bin/

Steps to use:

  1. Register a number in local DB:
    You can register a number by selecting one of the available numbers as shown below.

register-number

  1. Get the messages from any registered number:
    You can select a number which was saved in step-1 and view its messages as a list. The tool will also save the dump as json in the format ${PWD}/selected-phone-number.json. As shown below:

get-messages

  1. Optionally, you can choose to delete the rembered numbers or list them.

Acknowledgements

The similar tool is also available in pure shell script. Check this out.

Contributing

The tool is very simple and I don’t think there is any major feature missing. But I would welcome any kind of suggestion, enhancements or a bug-fix from the community. Please open an issue to discuss or directly make a PR!!
