Why there is no option to turn off Two-Factor Authentication on Apple iPhone & iPad?
You can’t turn off Two-Factor Authentication for Apple IDs created in iOS 10.3 and later (OR) macOS Sierra 10.12.4 and later. Two-Factor Authentication is default for those Apple accounts. So you can’t turn it off.

One of my devices is a MacBook Pro with an operating system that does not support two-factor authentication. I NEED to turn it off. It is driving that device nuts. Tell me how?

You can't turn off Two-Factor Authentication once if you turn on. Apple removed the option to turn off Two-Factor Authentication for some security reasons.

I can't turn this off, and I am disabled in the app store. Can someone please explain how to get apple id enabled in the app store without turning off two factor?

Anyone want two iPhone 6's, one is 32 gig and the other is 64 gig? I am factory resetting them and putting them up for sale. I have had enough of Apple. Going to pick out a fine Android.
