Stop the usage of our 'full names and mobile numbers' being used in e-mail correspondence?

Hi folks, I have noticed in my emails that I receive from Giffgaff every time I need to renew my 'goody bag top up' I get sent a reminder first, then I get an email to say that it's been renewed. But in my emails from Giffgaff they are not just! enclosing my 'user/log in name' they are also enclosing in the top right hand corner of my e-mails my 'full mobile number'?? Of which I really do not agree with this and I feel it is a serious breach of mines and possibly everyone's privacy!? And it also could leave us vulnerable to scammers and nuisance callers ect especially with all the latest cyber attacks in the news. As my full number definitely should not be shown on my Giffgaff e-mails?.

I have already complained to Giffgaff a few months ago and they haven't done anything about it?. And they just told me I should post it on here. So therefore I would really appreciate it if anyone! else agrees with me? Then could you please help and complain with me to customer services or higher management, as I feel this has been going on for too long and it really needs to be rectified as soon as possible so our personal information and privacy is better protected in future, Many thanks!.

I think that info included only verifies the authenticity of the email. How would you feel about opening an email from your bank, that doesn't refer to you by name? Email security is a totally different concern. I personally think this shouldn't have been removed and leaves us more vulnerable to phishing emails.

Supported. If your phone is stolen, and there is no screen lock password they can get into emails etc so would be better if only first name is used by Giffgaff in emails. I'd also prefer my full number not listed in email just in case emails got hacked.
