Facebook Forces 900 Million Users To Put Phone Details To Prevent Hacking

After the security breach in LinkedIn and eHarmony now the world's largest social network Facebook is asking each of its over 900 Million active users to provide their original mobile numbers as a part of a drive to improve security on the social networking site. Millions of Facebook users have already seen a link at the top of their profile requesting them to follow ''simple security tips''. Clicking on the link opens the site''s security page where users are asked to pick a unique password and given a tutorial on how to spot an online scam. Users are then requested to provide their phone number for secure account recovery. Facebook claims that when a user confirms their phone number it allows the site to automatically wipe their password in case their account is being hacked. The social network would then send a text message to the user informing that their password has been changed. According to the paper, Facebook, however, claimed that the security update has nothing to do with the recent LinkedIn hack.
