Let $d(n)$ denote the number of divisors of $n$. Is it known that the series $$\sum_{p \text{ prime}} \frac{1}{d(p-1)}$$ diverges?

This would follow immediately from the Sophie Germain Conjecture. Indeed, if there are infinitely many primes of the form $2p+1$ ($p$ a prime), then infinitely many terms of the series are equal to $1/4$, so the series doesn't even satisfy the most basic requirement for convergence! So, surely there must be a direct proof?
