Why do we need your mobile phone number?
We use mobile phone communication to provide an increased level of security for your account. By asking you to verify yourself via your trusted phone device, it stops other people from accessing your account, even if they know your password.
In time, once all users on the system have supplied their mobile phone numbers, our system may move toward a two-step verification process, similar to one used by many banking companies today. This will help us make sure that you are the only person accessing or modifying your account. A two-step verification asks you to identify yourself in two ways, firstly, by something you know, such as your password, and then secondly, by something you have, such as a physical device. Using two-step verification reduces the risk of your account being hacked and will keep your account safe and secure.
