Had to enter verification code when logging in

DL_Dietz says:

Is this new?

If so is there as way I can turn it off instead of waiting every day to get an email sent to me before I can log on?

DL_Dietz:

Yes this is new. We are constantly advancing our security protocols to maintain the security of Flickr accounts. You should not have to enter a verification code every time you log onto Flickr; however, our system will put in verification steps for login attempts that look suspicious. This can include logins from different devices or locations, and our system will learn these differences over time.

So if I only log in through the same device I shouldn't be sent the verification code often?

Yes - keep getting asked to supply the verification code - no verification code ever arrives in my yahoo Email account - now currently unable to log into my Flickr account. PLEASE GET RID OF THIS REQUIREMENT FOR A VERIFICATION CODE and let me access my account - I PAY FOR IT!!

But why are no codes arriving at our email in boxes? This is getting quite frustrating, as you can see by the messages here.

Why doesn't Flickr perfect how these things will work before they roll them out and frustrating users?

I am getting asked for Verification Code with every login. It's not as Melanie0426 said above. Is there a way to disable to 2 factor authentication process?

Thanks for flagging the issues here.

In attempt to keep all reports in one place, we kindly ask the conversation continues in the following thread:

[Investigating] why did i receive a code to verify when i just logged in???

We'll continue to provide updates there as they arise. Thanks for understanding!
