Facebook To Users: ‘Add Your Phone Number To Help Secure Your Account’

Some Facebook users are seeing alerts above the Graph Search bars on their News Feeds, prompting them to “Add your phone number to help secure your account.”

Facebook seeking users’ phone numbers for security reasons is nothing new, but the prompt atop users’ News Feed appears to be.

Readers: Has anyone else seen this prompt?

Thanks to Social Yeah Founder Kevin Evanetski for the tip and screenshot.
