How do I turn off two factor authentication on Spectrum's website?

When logging in to I put in my user name and password, then the website sends me a text for me to input a code to continue. I want this two factor authentication shut off. Thus far, no Spectrum will tell me how.

    Hi & welcome!

    Two-factor verification was added for account security and is not a feature that can be disabled.

    Thanks for the question!

    Why is it that all three Spectrum people I chatted or talked to did not know that you can not turn this off? Horrible service by Spectrum to be so ignorant!

    Edit: just curious if the webpage that comes up with the temporary security code echo entry field includes any kind an option like "remember this device" that can be hit after manually keying in the code.
