Disabling two-factor authentication

You can remove the extra layer of security both for your Exchange account, and for withdrawals by disabling two-factor authenticator (2FA). Once 2FA has been disabled for authorization, a login-password pair is sufficient to access an account. In addition, if a user disables 2FA for withdrawal, the transaction only requires an e-mail confirmation to be processed. This article provides a stepwise how-to on disabling 2FA for both cases.
