"Security verification expired, please start over." error when I try to add phone # for SMS

When I try to add my phone number for Blizzard SMS phone notifications, I get a “Security verification expired, please start over.” error. I try to start over and I get the same message. I even tried logging out and back in, however, I still get the error message.

I used the Add Blizzard Phone Notifications link from here… https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/26824

I originally had an error on the authenticator so I selected the “Enter manually” option. Not sure if this has anything to do with it.

I can provide a pic showing the error.

UPDATE: I just checked and I already have my phone added. If that’s the reason it’s causing an error, then that’s a terrible error message that should be fixed. It’ll help to cut down on support tickets.
