Is email verification required to create a Kakao Account?

Kakao Account uses your email address as your ID. You may forget your email address or password for Kakao Account in the future, so all Kakao services except for Kakao Talk require email verification using the Kakao Account email to create a Kakao Account.

Please provide an active email address as your Kakao Account email. If you use a company email or personal domain email, or if you delete the email account which you used for your Kakao Account, you may experience inconvenience as you will be unable to get a verification email in case you forget your password.
