Such information is usually partially censored for security reasons.That means that anyone knowing your username could have access to your phone number by going through the password recovery process. This didn’t seem to impact all players, but several users were affected in various territories in Asia, Europe and North America. In an update to their Reddit post, the user pointed out that the issue had now been resolved for them, with their phone number now being hidden when going through the process again. They called for MiHoYo to implement two factor authentication to better protect users and recommended Genshin Impact players to unlink their phone numbers for the time being.The issue didn’t seem to impact being sent a recovery code via email, with the address in this case being correctly censored.
