when i'm trying to post something on hub, Hubpage asking me to submit my phone number & in return will sms me, after that i can publish my writings.!! :s
is this secure? Any1 having similar problems? please help.. find below the exact message:
You must verify your phone number before you can publish this Hub
Please provide your phone number, including the country code. We will call you or send you a text message with a confirmation code that you can use to verify your account. You can read more here about why you are being asked to do this.
Phone number (without country code):
This is a new account implementation to protect the site from spam. I've no doubt it's as secure as they can make it, and they won't use your number for anything else.
WryLilt is this really a new measure from HP..I heven't heard of it before?
Ahh u know not later than last week , in the news i heard that a parcel came from an african country in which there were drugs,, and there was only a phone number on that parcel and they arrested that guy, and of course he is saying he has nothing to do with this as he has no idea why his phone number was on that parcel?? could be true.!! & now hearing all this how can I give a phone number on the Net.? also what if i dont use any phone.!! so no Hub activities for those who dont possess a phone?
HP is a reliable and professional site and when they say something they mean it.. you may have to take chances.. but the decision is yours. Best wishes to you
Is it happening for all members yet? I remember when the phone number method was first implemented and I was first to submit my number but I haven't written a hub for a while. Perhaps its only the ones who have volunteered.
They said at the time too that existing members would probably not be asked to verify. I verified mine but that's just because I was nosey to see how it worked. It has really worked - I am seeing a lot less spam!
I did not verify mine, to be honest I did see the thread but didn't bother reading it properly. I've published hubs since then with no problems

Earlier today I went to activate the ebay programme. I started filling in the 'read terms and conditions' boxes and clicked submit, when it asked me to provide my phone number to give the verification code. I didn't want to do this, so decided not to bother signing up to the programme and left the...

Which happens more often: You submit work to HubPage Network sites, or let HubPages submit for you?I've had a few of my hubs get submitted to network affiliated sites by HubPages, but I'm curious if you submit them as well. If so, how often do you submit them? Is this one of the key...
