According to a recent report by the Next Web, UK mobile operator O2 may actually be sending your mobile phone number to every single website that you visit on your device.
The guys from the Next Web have tested this with a mobile phone on O2’s network and were able to replicate the issue and the website did indeed get the mobile phone number from the deice.
O2 has responded by saying that they are looking into it, although there doesn’t seem to be any sort of response from them as yet on why this has been happening.
