    Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world, and the biggest one when it comes to consumer retail. The number of deliveries that Amazon makes in a year is simply astounding, and each year they are growing stronger.

    In 2020, it was estimated that Amazon was delivering 2/3rd of its orders via their own delivery arm: Amazon Logistics. The supply and delivery arm delivered 4.2 billion shipments in 2020, a nearly 127% increase from the year prior.

    But, in order to keep everything on track and deliver your order on time Amazon needs to maintain a humungous database of your personal details like payment information, residential addresses, email address, and most importantly: phone numbers.

Nowadays, you receive a shipment tracking link and a payment link too on your phone number. Not only this, having your phone number registered with your Amazon account adds a layer of security to your account.
