Major Risks Involved in Posting Phone Numbers on Facebook

Cell phone number, people search, reverse phone search, email search

 
PRLog - Apr. 18, 2014 - NetSearch411.com would like to remind all Facebook users they can encounter many various privacy risks when posting their phone number anywhere on Facebook.  Anytime a person posts their phone number on Facebook or lists their cell phone number in a Facebook profile, they are placing their privacy at risk.  This information is easily searchable by telemarketers, bill collectors, private investigators, and any number of other people you simply do not want to speak with.  Facebook users may think their information is only available to the people in their friends list, but this is simply not true.

Those who have Facebook installed on their smartphone create a privacy risk as soon as they select to install the Facebook app.  Upon installation, this app collects your private information such as cell phone number, contacts list, and your location.  Even altering your privacy settings on Facebook still does not prevent others from possibly accessing your private cell phone number.  As well, the privacy of your personal cell phone number is reduced even further with new developments in Facebook apps such as Whatsapp and calling features on Facebook Messenger that require your phone number for basic functions.  These social network apps require the use of your cell phone number for search purposes and users cannot install these apps without the entering or automatic collection of this information.  Once this information is provided to Facebook it is instantly searchable by anyone in the world.  Cell phone numbers are very desirable information to advertisers, telemarketers, collection agencies, and many others as we are most often always reachable via cell phone.

However, with cell phone privacy laws without posting our phone number somewhere it may be difficult to share your cell phone number with others whom you do want to speak with.  NetSearch411.com is providing a solution that allows users to avoid the privacy risks associated with posting your phone number on Facebook or anywhere else online.  Visitors can create a free people search (http://www.netsearch411.com/) profile that provides complete privacy in allowing members to select who views their cell phone information. Those wanting to find a person's cell phone number can simply request this information through the NetSearch411 website which instantly sends a request to the owner of the information.  NetSearch411 is providing this service as a safe and secure alternative to allow people to be reachable while still maintaining a sense of privacy.  For more information on how to keep you private cell phone number safe, go to http://www.netsearch411.com
