How to Turn off Two Factor Authentication on iPhone

We guess you are planning to turn off two-factor authentication for your Apple ID but can't find the option to turn off two-factor authentication, right? If you don't see the option to turn off two factor authentication on your Apple ID login page, that likely means you're not able to turn it off. In such cases, you'll have to contact Apple support to request that they disable two factor authentication, or register a new iCloud ID on the Apple ID website and change the iCloud ID on your device.

Apple quietly canceled the option to disable 2FA. Apple's  support page for 2FA notes that you can still turn it off within the first two weeks of enabling 2FA. But after that, the Apple ID website no longer allows you to disable 2FA.

If you already use two-factor authentication, you can't turn it off again. Some features in the latest versions of iOS and macOS require this extra level of security to protect your information. If you recently updated your account, you can cancel your registration for two weeks.
