If you MUST use SM

Use a pseudonym.

Use a unique email address.

Use a unique password.

Use a unique PAYG unregisterd SIM (not possible in all countries) if you think you MUST give them a phone number. Better to regard the account as disposable and ignore 2FA. Use a decent unique password.

Do not ever post your real age or address or real names of any family or friends. Use email with people that need to know that stuff.
