    Google won't assign a google+ ID without release of mobile phone number.  What would you do?

    Assign with mobile number if the Google+ID is important for you to have. If it's not that important, keep your mobile number to yourself ofcourse.

    If we talk about privacy here, the days are over now that mobile numbers are 'required' for almost any profile online. It's not something you can easily avoid unless you don't need Google+ to begin with. It's up to each and everyone's personal choice I guess.

    Some people input fake numbers which they don't own or avoid the service altogether. I don't want to give Google that info and I choose not to sign up for these types of services. The choice is up to each individual and only you can choose what you prefer and what's best for you.

    There is nothing malicious here. In fact it is the opposite.  Even banks are using sms to mobiles to verify actions that are personally sensitive.  Like transfers of money. In the case of online accounts like Google, Yahoo, Facebook etc... it is a way to verify the person making the changes is authorized. Hence you get a code sent by sms to your mobile when you want to make personally sensitive changes to you online profile. This is a great way to protect your info because it's not very likely you would be making such changes and holding a phone that's not yours at the same time. You would think it would already have been shut down if reported stolen so such changes wouldn't be possible.

      I think Google says your friends on Google+ may need to contact you. I do know my bank uses my mobile phone and text messages, so it is becoming more widespread. I used to keep my cell phone number private. Thanks for comment .
