Let us begin with asking you a simple question. Why do you think we ask for your mobile number?
As you would have guessed, we ask for it so that recruiters can contact you for matching job opportunities.
Some of us forget this simple thing and knowingly or unknowingly, provide our incorrect contact details. Due to this, when a recruiter dials the number mentioned in your profile, she is unable to do so & the opportunity is lost.
We at naukri.com try our best to communicate to you the importance of verified email id & mobile number. We are sure that those of you who listened, have benefited from it.
Taking this forward, we have now introduced another new feature – Duplicate Number Alert. From now on, when any user enters a mobile number matching the mobile number of an existing registered user, a Duplicate Number Alert email will be sent prompting the users to verify their mobile numbers.
The idea is simple. Only the one who owns the number should be able to display it to the recruiters. So if you get any such email, just verify your mobile number ownership by following a few simple steps.
[Note: We do not ask for your username or password in an email. Only enter your usernamepassword on a webpage when the addressURL bar has a Naukri.com address in it]
Wondering why would someone enter someone else’s number? Here are a few reasons why:
1. You changed your mobile number and forgot to update your naukri.com profile:-
The new user to whom the mobile operator assigned the new number updated that in her profile.
In such a case, on successful mobile number verification, the old number will be removed from your profile as the ownership has changed
2. You unknowingly entered a wrong number:-
We all are prone to making typo errors. All you need to do is update your profile with your correct mobile number if you get such an alert.
3. You don’t want to share your mobile number with naukri.com and entered a random number matching someone else’s mobile number:-
That’s not good. You should always provide your own contact number otherwise the recruiters will not be able to contact you.
Let’s all make sure we keep our contact info updated in our naukri.com profiles. One call can make all the difference to your Career.
Wish you all the best for your jobsearch!
