Before, they used to say 'to verify the account owner'. Now, they are saying 'to verify your identity'.
Creating a question and answer is not enough. Phone number and more wanted.
Anyway, I was chilling out; this came to my mind.
When I tell people that I do not have an account on any social networking sites, they don't believe me.
'You are a computer major, and you don't have an account'.
My job is to create the pages/softwares you view/use, not to use them personally.
Have a nice night!
