Overwatch 2 phone requirement is being removed for existing players following intense backlash. In case you weren't affected by the SMS Protect system and haven't been keeping up, Overwatch 2 launched with a plethora of problems - including but not limited to - players not receiving SMS messages in order to register, and in a more egregious case, not being allowed to register simply because they had prepaid phone plans.

Along with announcing the removal of SMS Protect for existing players in Overwatch 2 , the development team addressed other ongoing issues.

In a bid to keep player accounts protected and curb in-game toxicity, Blizzard added an SMS Protect system to Overwatch 2 for players. This system required all players, across all platforms, to have a phone number associated with their Battle.net accounts.
