Alison Chan, I do not use Chromium. Use another browser and go to
Google's registration link for gmail.com which is below. Did you get the
same registration form using both browsers? 

One of Google's requirements IS to enter a MOBILE phone number.  Google,
craigslist.org, paypal.com, etc. do not accept voicemail numbers or
landline numbers. They require a mobile number. Mobile numbers are
easily geolocated.

Google is also requiring new customers' other email address on the
registration form. More invasion of privacy and geostalking.
