There are a range of two-factor authentication mechanisms that can be added to your GitHub account, so this does not require sharing your cell phone number with them at all if you don’t want to

I’m not sure why people are complaining about this change, this seems like a reasonable security uplift that will hopefully be adopted across more services

I hope not.

Github should not be in the business of telling developers what to do.

I suppose it’s also a horrendous infringement on our freedoms to require HTTPS </sarcasm>

htttps doesn’t require me to register a phone number.

Indeed, I have two accounts and none of them use my phone number as a 2FA
