Gmail is worse. I tried to login on a foreign computer for Gmail and Google groups. It wanted my cell no. to add to my profile. I refused. I don't let anyone have my cell phone no. unless I trust them. I went round in circles. Every time I tried to access Gmail and Groups without a cell no. it refused. It wanted to text me a secret access code. And I don't have a land-line although texting to landlines is impossible anyway. So I gave up. Talk about putting barriers in front of accessing services, like those damned capchas. But this was crazy. CJB.

Subject: [Y-Mail] logging in to Yahoo Mail
Date: Tuesday, 25 June, 2013, 16:41Periodically, I need to log in to Yahoo Mail. After I enter my password, I am taken to a page that asks me for my cell phone number in order to have immediate help. The only option for me is to click "ask me later" since, I do not have a cell phone. Even when I had a cell phone, I would not give out my number except to my friends.
Lately, every time I log in, I am asked to give my cell phone number or the other option to have Yahoo ask me later. I do not plan to get another cell phone. Shouldn't there be an option to select "I do not have a cell phone" so that Yahoo will skip this page?
