App and website ask to confirm phone numbers over and over. {Confirm, phone number, ask}

Why does the app and website continue to insist "we won't ask for this information again" when you verify your phone number, even though it continues to ask me to verify across my account and my kids' accounts at least once a month for years on end? Please at least don't pretend it's a one-time deal.
