Hello all! Somehow, my two-step verification got turned on in my Samsung account and there is no option or toggle to turn it back off. Anyone have any suggestions on how I go about turning it back off? Thank you!

I think Samsung has made this a mandatory security feature. This is because there were to many security issues with just a password protecting Samsung users accounts.

I would recommend you mark your device as trused when signing in and to copy your back up codes.

If you want to learn more about 2FA i would recommend looking at this post by Samsung

Yeah, Samsung replied via email to me saying it's now mandatory. And I tried to mark my device as trusted but it won't let me click on "Trusted Devices " I also copied my backup codes. Thank you for your help and response!
