something to honk about
I don’t want to give google my mobile number. I’m being asked for this information repeatedly when logging into my gmail account because apparently this will help keep my account more secure if google can contact me by phone when I forget my password. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll take my chances.
All evidence indicates that google will eventually figure out my number anyway, without my help. I went down the rabbit hole last night by googling myself. I found out my maiden name, who I am friends with on facebook, what I have for sale on Etsy, who I am married to, what community center I have been a member of, as well as three former addresses and two former phone numbers. Correct on all counts. Apparently life under this rock I call home hasn’t hindered google in it’s ability to keep track of me.
So google, give it a rest. I’m not giving you my cell phone number. If you want it, you’ll have to figure it out on your own. You seem to pretty good at that.
Have you googled yourself lately? This was my first time, but I hear everyone is doing it.
