What is the “Read Phone State and ID” permission for Android apps all about?

This applies to a lot of Android apps including the MakeUseOf app. One of the permissions it requires is “Read Phone State and ID” permission.

My question is twofold:

1. What exactly does granting this permission do?
2. Why does the MakeUseOf app require this permission?
