I am trying for a job in any location in North America ,Europe .I have planned to post my resume in Job portals.

Should I update my Mobile Phone number in the portal or not?.

My doubt is "it is kind of leaking my personnel information?"

I would advise to stay away from any job sites that require people to post personal information out in the open. At least, it should only be visible to people/companies that are paying money to the job site for the privilege of getting this information. Anything less is simply not acceptable these days.

I would make a similar warning against sending personal details to people who post jobs. If they have a recognisable company e-mail like in this post, you are probably all right, but otherwise it is hazardous.

I presume that is a reputable company website? Where is it maintained? Remember European laws about data security are much stricter than in some other parts of the world, so a European site may be safer.

If you are satisfied about those questions, then it is probably the right place to enter your phone number.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
