That's why I'll never use any service that requires my phone number to be registered or login.... and of course also because I don't want to give them an almost perfect unique identifier.

Unluckily, I can't kill the friends who let their phonebooks to be slurped.

What do the many people here who defended the practice of asking your phone number think now?
