In the online world, the underlying risks are many. One of these is access to personal data and accounts of social networks, such as Facebook.

A security parameter that someone may not have thought to protect their account is the phone number.

A computer programmer advises Facebook users to delete their phone number from the social media, because it is easy for someone to connect to a profile through it.

And this, according to him, is because when someone opens an account, optionally, Facebook allows users to use their phone number to gain access.

But this can happen if someone has forgotten their old number still linked to the account, according to a “Daily Mail” report.

In particular, according to James Martindale:

Your Facebook account is a treasure and is worth a lot of money. There are people who buy accounts on the “black market” but also on public websites like “Reddit”.

He also claims that he managed to get into third-party accounts in this way.

It also makes known that telephone numbers that are being canceled, recycled, and given to other citizens, meaning that there is no good data protection.

So if you’ve put your old phone number as an alternative to your Facebook password, you might want to reconsider.
