Re: Two Step Varification Code

Thank you. I was able to remove the Two Step Varification Code because of your post. What a work up it was everytime you wanted to get in. I understand security but I don't always have my phone on for the code to be sent. Thanks again.

@Lorraine1972 yes, additional security usually means more inconvenience, unfortunately.  With many login processes you're able to turn off the need for a verification text message for trusted browsers and locations, but unfortunately Sky's implementation of two step login is a bit crude and doesn't offer that option. I tried two step verification for Sky Yahoo Mail, but like you found it too much of a pain and rapidly turned it off again.

If you mean the Recovery Code, it was sent to your email address when you set up 2 step verification and it was recommended you keep a separate note of it at the time,

Thankyou. I understood what you said. But I can't get access and I can't remember it either.
