In a world full of deceit, I do not want my mobile phone number in the hands of Microsoft or Google, how can I continue?
Is there a way to explain to Google that I am far more fearful of what they will do with my number than I am about what anyone can do with my Google or Microsoft account?
It is as if they are using fear to make me hand over my identity, and I just don't like it.
If I get compromised, they won't help me anyway, so why are they pretending to be so concerned?
I will keep my mobile number to myself, and if that means no Google account, so be it!
