    I have had my account for a long while and when I signed in today, I have to authenticate my account?

    What is this all about?

    So I proceed to give them my GV number and they say it can't be authenticated. I don't want to give my cell number to them

    Anyway I can use my GV number? What is the point of this anyways?

    EDIT:

    Tried my cell number and apparently it is already in use by another account that I must have forgotten about. Any idea how to to figure out what account is used with this number

    Yeah, this is a huge hassle. Once your number is connected to an account you can't ever disconnect it, or use that number again to confirm a different account... so if you ever need a whole new CL account you also need a whole new phone number.

    Pain in the butt, big time.
