For Modern Warfare 2, developers have added a compulsory feature that requires each player to confirm their identity by attaching their phone number before they can play as an additional measure of protection against cheats. Most players shouldn’t have too much trouble with this, but a small number of Steam users seem to be experiencing the same problem where they are prompted to verify their phone number even though they have already done so. Here’s how to fix it if you’re one of the numerous Steam users who launch Modern Warfare 2 only to get stuck on the “Mobile Phone Number Required” prompt.
