An alternate email address is required so that in case you lose the password of your email, then password restore information could be sent to the alternate one. Nowadays, everyone has 2-3 or more email addresses on different sites. It's a good security feature to have an alternate email address to recover your login information. I will suggest you to make use of it.

Same is for the phone number. But yes, some people may think it's too personal. But again, your email is personal too.
