For awhile, Gmail kept nagging me about providing my number in order to activate "two-step verification." Now it's back to just asking for it in case something happens to my account, which is what Yahoo has been whining about all along. I know all my information is "out there," but I don't think it's a good idea to hand any one entity all my information.
Also, an increasing number of websites are inviting me to sign in using Facebook. It would certainly make life easier, but so far I've been registering with each site individually, to keep FB from knowing everything I look at and comment on.
Should I keep up this show of information-guarding, or is it just wishful thinking that it might make a difference?
