Has this happened to anyone where access was denied for "security reasons" ??

I was flummoxed when this happened to me a little while ago specially since I was happily
commenting away. The problem arose when they asked me for mobile number and in whatever
format I gave it, it was rejected saying not in correct format. I do wish Google would put a sample
of what is the correct format as an example. Entering an overseas mobile number one generally has
to put country codes, city code etc but apparently this is not so.
Whose to know unless you specifically say so?

It did give me an anxious forty five minutes but we are back to transmission again!!


  1. I just ignore it when it asks for that. Its not required. I can't text, its not included in my plan. I'm not sure I would if I had it included.

  2. How frustrating! I've never been asked for a mobile number, so I have no idea what that's about.

  3. They ask me for a phone number from time to time but I don't give it. There's no way I want to give Google my phone number!
    I can imagine how frustrated you were - glad it worked out for you.

  4. I had to give my mobile number and they did send a verification number immediately and no sooner I entered it, it allowed me to open the blog. I had no choice.

  5. How frustrating indeed, glad its working now.
