There is literally nothing on that website about disabling or turning off two step verification.

Has anyone managed to resolve these steps and actually turn this off?

I have asked on another thread and been told unequivocally that it is not possible but I would also desperately like to disable this two-step business.

You can turn off two step verification but this WILL NOT disable familiar location requesting a step when signing in from a different computer.

I can tell you from experience that even with 2 step off when you travel to a different location that is more than 300 miles away you will be prompted to either have a code send via sms or sent via email.

4. You will see a page where you will find a link to “Set up two-step verification” or “Turn Off” Two-step verification.

THIS IS FALSE. I do not see the option for 'turn-off two-step verification'. Can you please update your information and give us a better answer.

Same with me...there is no "Turn Off" selection.

Only option is to "setup"

Which then begs the question, if it is not setup or on, then why is my iphone saying passwork is incorrect and unable to retrieve emails from my hotmail???
