Suddenly, this afternoon, my girlfriend's Gmail account asked her to give them a cell phone number to verify her account. After looking around a little, it seems that it's happening outside of the US but not to everyone (I checked with some friends but their accounts were fine).

Has anyone else experienced this or seen an official word from Google about it?

Thanks!

Excellent. Thanks!

It still seems so random and haphazard. I'd expect vagueness from other companies but Google is usually pretty upfront about what they're doing.
