I found out about a site a few days ago called www.mymusicbrowser.com. Please go there to familiarize yourself with the service they are offering. They let me use their demo version for the last few days, but not now. Now I get a message saying for me to list my mobile phone number so they can send me a validation code by SMS text to confirm my account. They are based in Costa Rica. I feel a little uncomfortable giving a site my cell phone number so they can send me a text message to confirm my registration for their service. Am I being prudent or being too cautious? I just don't want to be the victim of any scam here, like them running up charges on my cell phone or whatever. I have scoured the Internet and cannot find one bit of information about this service, which I find odd. You think there would be a review of it somewhere. If anybody can find a review, please provide me with the link, I would appreciate it.
I admittedly like the service they are providing. But I would like to know if there are any potential risks involved in giving out your cell phone number to a website to validate your account. Usually, most sites send you some kind of an activation link to the email you provide to confirm an account. That I have no problem with.
But this leaves me a bit uncomfortable. What do you think?
