As the subject says - How to enter my Samsung account WITHOUT getting a message on my Galaxy phone each time?

My Galaxy A13 was purchased cheaply in a retailers sale as a backup incase anything happens to my main phone which is an iPhone.

 

When ever I try to log into this community or my Samsung account it is infuriating in that it send a message to my (not used) Galaxy A13 with a code that I need to enter to prove that I am me.

In order for me to read/see the code I have to shut down my iPhone, pull out my sim card, insert it into the Galaxy, turn it on and wait for the message notifacation. This is not really acceptable and I do not want to keep pulling my sim card out of my iPhone every time I wish to access this community as that is a sure way to damage the Sim.

Is there nothing that I can do like some setting in my Samsung account that I canb set so the message is sent to my iPhone and NOT the Galaxy?

I find it quite stupid that Samsung is doing things like this as I own multiple samsung devices from SSD's to two Samsung Smart TV's and a Samsung Ecobubble Washing machine so to limit an owners access to this forum is unacceptable - What if I did not own a Samsung phone?

It's most likely because you do have a samsung phone that you have two step verification turned on. If you go to settings > you're account > security and privacy. You can manage two step verification there.
