Phone number appears to users and can be picked up by google so that can get spammed. Edit: I have been assured by the developers that although it looks like the number is exposed, it is not picked up by search engines. Also there is meant to be a check box that enables to take straight to the app. This didn't seem to work for me. However, I am now using a different plugin that I am happy with and don't have the desire to install the plugin again just to test it again.
