Why does social media link my phone number everywhere? How can I get rid of that?

I hate how if someone enters my phone number they can find me anywhere: facebook, youtube, google account, etc. If I get rid of phone # then my account wont be secured and I will probably not be able to have a fb or google account. Why do they like to make things so complicated? Not like I am doing anything bad or illegal, jeez.

I want and like my privacy. Its not like I am doing anything bad. I just dont want people to find my other facebook because its for family and close friends. I dont want stalkers stalking my profile, trying to find me or anything.

Is there NO WAY to get rid of that? Thanks...

I cant Speak for Search Engines but for Facebook you can Change your Privacy Setting so that only Friends Of Friends can look you up by Phone Number to do that Go to Settings then go to Privacy under who can look me up by Phone click on that Box and Select Friends of Friends

There is no way to Turn that Off Completely tho Unfortunately

Its the way it is

As far as Search Engines goes that has a lot to do with your Carrier Storing Information you do not have any Control over that

You can have your accounts secured by your phone number, without making the number visible to the public.
