Phone number no longer required during registration
10/20/2022 - Edited at: 10/21/2022
Before today, people were prompt to fill in their phone number for SMS verifcation. This is no longer required.
GeeGee has now removed the SMS verification step during the account registration.
Their main reason of having this feature was an extra layer on security of preventing players to easily create a new account after they had been permanantly banned from the game due to illegal software.
However they have noticed that, there was a large amount of countries that prevented GeeGee their client to send a SMS with verification token. Therefore those people were unable to create an account.
With this removal, people that have experienced this issue can now launch the game and your account will be created automatically through Steam. Whenever you are in need of support and use the support helpdesk, you will be prompt to sign up with your email address.
For those players that have registered when SMS verification was still required, your phone number will be removed in the near future. In the meantime, they will further strengthen their security systems in other ways to ensure that there is no shortage of countermeasures against illegal programs.| /storage/news/phone-number-no-longer-required-during-registration
