- You can’t. If Two-Factor Authentication is enabled, you can’t turn it off for that particular Apple ID.
- If the Trusted device is unavailable, you can transfer your SIM to another device to get a call or SMS with the code.
- You can’t do anything if you don’t have the AppleID password. Apple can’t help you out in this regard.
How can I get into my iCloud without a Verification code?
Two-Factor Authentication is an absolute must these days considering that the better part of our lives is stored on personal devices and related accounts. This applies to AppleID which binds all Apple products you own. Now, some users are wondering how to bypass Two-Factor Authentication on iCloud and gain access to a certain AppleID account on other devices. This is not possible for obvious security reasons. There are a few ways to get the authentication code but turning off Two-Factor Authentication is not possible.
The easiest way to sign in is with a Trusted device, the pop-up should appear. After you allow access, you’ll get the 6-number code.
If you have a phone number associated with your AppleID, you don’t need to use a Trusted device. You can move the SIM card to an alternative device. You’ll get the code via SMS or receive it via an automated call. Have in mind that you’ll still need your Apple ID and password in order to ask for the verification code.
To reset your password and ask for a verification code, you should navigate to the Apple iForgot website. If you follow the instructions closely, you should be able to log into your device without bigger issues. Also, as we already said, transferring your SIM card to a different device will allow you to get an authentication code there.
With that said, we can conclude this article. To summarize, if you own the device and have access to your AppleID, the Two-Factor Authentication shouldn’t pose an issue at all.
