Giving fake credentials

Hello there!

Is it considered fraud if someone gives a fake email address in order to have access to Github Pro?
I’ve known some people that are afraid of entering their uni email addresses due to privacy issues and I was just wondering that.

Thanks in advance!

If you have concerns about using your university email address, you can apply without. However, you will have to provide sufficient documentation to prove your enrollment and there can be a substantial delay as the team verify your documents.

You can, of course, use your university email on GitHub but not use it in a way that will be displayed publicly. We have more information here:

Using someone else’s university email address to apply for the pack is considered fraudulent, and if discovered, usually carries substantial consequences in terms of your ability to use GitHub.
