What is Facebook?

Mark Zuckerberg founded the well-known social networking site Facebook in 2004. Facebook allows users to share images and videos, as well as message, comment, and like other people's posts to stay in touch with friends and family. Businesses can also build pages and run advertisements on the platform to reach their target market. Facebook is one of the most well-known social networking platforms in the world today with over 2.8 billion active users globally. The firm not only owns the primary Facebook platform but also other well-known social media applications like Instagram and WhatsApp.


Why should I not use my phone number for Facebook?

There are a few factors to think about if you decide against using your phone number for Facebook:

  1. Privacy issues: Users must supply a phone number to Facebook to verify their accounts. However, if you provide Facebook with your phone number, it will be linked to your account and may one day be used to locate you. You might not want to give out your phone number if you're worried about privacy.
  2. Security risks: Using your phone number as your Facebook login information increases the danger of account hacking. Your phone number may be used by hackers to reset passwords or get access to other accounts that are connected to your phone number if they manage to get hold of it.
  3. Unsolicited calls and messages: By giving Facebook access to your phone number, you may put yourself at risk of receiving unsolicited calls and messages from other Facebook users.
  4. Facebook's data history: Data sales by Facebook in the past: Facebook has a history of selling user data to outside businesses. Several high-profile data scandals involving the unauthorised acquisition and use of user data by outside businesses for targeted advertising and other uses have included Facebook in the past. Many users are still concerned about how their personal information is being used and shared, even if Facebook has taken steps to strengthen its data privacy practices. You may be able to restrict the amount of personal information Facebook has access to and the likelihood that your information may be shared with third parties without your agreement by choosing not to give Facebook your phone number.

Some users may decide to avoid using their phone number while setting up a Facebook account to reduce these potential risks. One such service is SMSPool. This can lessen the chance of illegal access to their account and preserve their privacy. It's crucial to remember, too, that a strong password and two-factor authentication can also help safeguard your Facebook account against security attacks.
