Seems a tad dangerous/annoying... what if I put someone else's number in? What if I write a script and/or get a bunch of people to put that number in every five minutes?

Then a bunch of guys in Google shirts will come bust down your door.

Seriously though, I would imagine they built-in some sort of safety against the same number being put in repeatedly. Though that still wouldn't stop you from putting the number in a few times.

It's also dangerous for the companies – to protect your privacy google doesn't reveal your number. Countless websites have mentioned how you could use this to make prank calls and not get caught.
