How do I turn off the 6 digit passcode on my Apple ID?

  1. This new Apple verification six digit number is killing me? How do I take it off? I can't access any movies on my Apple TV now.

To turn off two-factor authentication, sign in to your Apple ID account page and click Edit in the Security section. Then click "Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication". You'll need to create new security questions and verify your birthdate. After that, two-factor authentication will be turned off. 

You can also turn it off from the enrollment confirmation email sent to your Apple ID or rescue email address. Click "Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication" at the bottom of the email to restore your Apple ID to its previous security settings. The link is only active for two weeks after you enroll.


To turn on 6 digit verification on your Apple ID follow either of these steps for iOS or Mac OS El Capitan:

  1. Go to Settings > iCloud > tap your Apple ID.
  2. Tap Password & Security.
  3. Tap Turn on Two-Factor Authentication.

On a Mac:
  1. Go to Apple () menu > System Preferences > iCloud > Account Details.
  2. Click Security.
  3. Click Turn on Two-Factor Authentication.
