Don't want to give phone or alternate email
Why requirement to link phone or other email account to this one? Actually safer if a separate email account, unlinked to any other phone or email, is used solely for the email account that is given to Facebook. Facebook has major security problems and an unlinked account dedicated solely to that purpose would limit the damage of a breach.
Thank you for the feedback, however at this time we are keeping the requirement for either an phone number or secondary email. This helps ensure real users are creating accounts as well as help with the recovery of emails accounts if passwords were forgotten.

I don't know why I need to give you my phone number to verify before I can send an email when I've already given an alternate email. You're crazy if you think Im giving my phone number over the internet. You DO NOT NEED it and Im not giving it out to you or anyone else
"Please verify your account to help us stop spammers"
I hate to mention this MS - but spammers use 'Burner' phones more than any other tool, so why use such a ridiculous way to verify an account??
As you clearly have no common sense between you, please close the account drjoannakb - instead, I'll create an Apple iCloud account which actually works.....
I don't have phone number and you require it to verify my account. Will you buy me one?
Can't confirm account by phone. Please help
When I made a complain about this, hotmail's costumers service send me an e-mail where in they ask for some more info but I cant't send emails because I have no phone for verification.........
I can't send e-mails anymore,because I can't verify my account. I have no phone. Please help. Chopra.
Who in the **** do you think you are to demand a cell phone number just to send a message? Perhaps this is simply another privacy violation that should be reported.
why you asking for my phone? if you dont allowed me to use my email like send email, i will cancel my account and go back to gmail. this is very stupid. you have no right to ask me about my phone. i will secure my email by my own. please dont ask my about my phone an let me use my Hotmail. thank you.
If verifying with a phone I do not have is now the ony way to use your service (send emails), I will unfortunately have to delete this email and go for a competitor.
