I had not had that yet....

but just yesterday they shut me out saying they did not recognise my location...


I had been using the same computor all month from teh same location


so they asked me to recognize people in a series of six photos.....

how many on your friends list can you really recognise in random photos, including those dressed up in costumn at marti gras and drunk? They showed me one of those....

I will never give them my phone numbers ... neve hd never will...

but if they got it.... it is a security question they are trying out.....


yet there is no way to email them.... have you noticed??
I wnet looking... nothing

Are you serious Phoenix?


I don't believe that...


Gonna make a g-mail addy and see.





Made email... lilmctater@gmail.com

No phone number needed.

But I notice they have a new Google "Call Phone" thing now.

How does this work?
You can now place calls to landline and mobile phones from within Gmail. Just dial any phone number and you’ll be connected. Learn more.

Rates
Calls to the U.S. and Canada are free in 2010. International calls are billed at our insanely low rates.

Emergency Calls
By clicking accept, you understand and agree that Google Voice is an enhanced call management application and that Google Voice is not capable of placing and receiving emergency service calls. Read the complete Terms of Service.
 Quoting: gmail




Yay. Everybody call your friends and family so Gmail can listen to your conversations.

Re: Why the hell is facebook requiring you to enter a cell phone number?
They just asked my # to verify the account, apparently they think that I may be a machine or someone else using another account for gaming. If you don't have a phone their only other option is scanning a GOVERNMENT ISSUED ID. Sorry, not everyone has a drivers licence or a passport.

 Quoting: Phoenix 2012


Incorrect - Gmail is offering up the cell phone option in order to increase account protection. It is NOT mandatory.

From Gmail's Security section:
We all may forget our passwords at some point, so we strongly encourage that you update your account recovery options. To update these options, sign in to your Google Account by going to [link to www.google.com (secure)] and click Change password recovery options.

* Recovery email address: We can use your recovery email address to communicate with you if you lose access to your account. Learn more.
* SMS: We can send you a recovery code to your mobile phone number, which you can use to reset your password. Learn more.
* Secret question: This option is only available if you can't use the above recovery options and only if haven't tried to sign in during the past 24 hours. An ideal answer to your security question is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess.

The bold section is why they ask for the phone number.

Google voice users - you should not use this number for the recovery. If your email account is compromised, so is your google voice.

Watch for more changes/options in the near future.

Gmail wants you to validate your alternate account just for that reason. Many people set up their email and forget they need to keep that alternate account active. Their account gets compromised, they forget their password, etc and it does no good to send recovery info to a non-valid email. Which is why they're trying to tie accounts in to cell phone numbers - extra security and no worrying about 2nd email accounts.

Gmail does have the social network thing called "Buzz" - which you can turn off by going to settings. Gmail also means you have a Google Account and that's linked in to all their products. So if someone gets into your email - they get into it ALL!

Now Facebook - that's an entirely other ugly monster and I wouldn't give them jacksquat except one email....and I'm seriously considering deleting my account completely.

Facebook is overrated. I have an account, but don't use it. They don't have my real name, my real address and they sure as hell aren't getting my cell phone number. They'll just put it up for sale to the highest bidder like all the other data they've been collecting over the years. Same goes for GMAIL.

Here's the Gmail help page on opening a new account and being asked for phone #:

[link to mail.google.com]

This option is rarely seen in the US - and it's still a bit random on who gets the request and who doesn't. If you get the request, people have had luck exiting out and signing up again and they don't get the request again.

And you have to love the part where they say if you don't have a phone, use a friends. LOL

Worst case sinarerio

So when the ptb, decide to cull threats, they just access there systems of information, filtering all those with the traits desired, bunch of signals with attached photo and relavant information, would then be transfered to there paid assasins, or hit squads, who will be guided live from over head tracking staililites, all perhaps they wont even bother sending assassins, just have a preditor hone in on your phone signel.

Carnt think of a best case sinarerio, sound to far feached lol.
