Admittedly I may have an issue operating my phone;lol

Is every member jumping through this hoop with their phone as well?
Never used to be a issue that I can recall?

Thanks to anyone who can help me eliminate this frustrating step.
Try changing your password . If your password was considered weak it kicks in 2 factor authentication. We did this to keep malicious bots out of the forum.

If that doesn't do it, and if you're running a VPN, try turning that off and seeing if it resolves the issue.

Thanks for the tips.
I've gotten the weak password message and disregarded it. Guess I'll have to change it. God help my feeble memory with a new Pword:p
A hacker told Grandma, "I've broken into your computer and now have all of your passwords."

Grandma responded: "Great! Let me get a pencil and paper so that you can tell me them!"
