I have activated my Two-Step Verification security option on the samsung account website, I received sms on my mobile number, I used it to activate the Two-Step Verification, now my Two-Step Verification option is on.

 

When I signed in my SAMSUNG account on my mobile, and requesting the Two-Step Verification code, I don't receive any code, tried that from samsung accounts website, the same thing happened, I can generate backup codes, which won't work with the phone, Now I am trying to turn off the Two-Step Verification option, but I don't know how.

 

Long story short, I am trapped with the security layer I wanted to protect myself with.

 

Please I need your help

I too noticed that the two step verification has to be enabled to perform a back up.

 

You could try going into Settings, Accounts and Back up, Accounts, Tap on your Samsung Account, Password and Security, Two Step verification is there @BoeingMan

This is the problem, it's a freshly setup phone, I need to signup my samsung account to restore my data, when I sign in with my samsung account details, user name and password, i get the two steps verification, it shows that an SMS been sent to my phone number, and I wait and wait and wait, while nothing happening. then I am timed out, and I have to request a verification code again, and so on.

 

I never used 2 steps verifications, but yesterday, I wanted to give meself the extra security layer. Not knowing that I'll be scewing myself with that.

 

Is there any online customer support I can use to get this dumb option turned off?

 

Thank you for your time and feedback, 

It is just not helping my case here

Are you 100% sure you keyed in your mobile number correctly ?

 

It may also be worth contacting your mobile network to ensure receiving texts from companies like Samsung has been allowed.

 

For your Samsung Support Department I'd suggest a Google Search @BoeingMan

Yes, I am sure of the phone number is 100% correct, also I am sure of my mobile service provider is able to receive sms from any sender, samsung ancluded. 

 

I received sms from Samsung when I 1st set up the 2setps verifications when I enabled that service via the samsung accounts website.

 

Once the option was activated, I then signed in my fresh mobile to set up the samsung account, at that moment, I signed in using my username and password, then step 2 is saying an SMS has been sent to your mobile number. But nothing happened till it time me out. once that happened it'll ask you to resend the code, and so on

Hello.,

This is happening to me now, At 1st I had the above mentioned problem, but since last week, When I login to my samsung account on my phone, i put my username and my password, then I go to step 2 which the sms verification code, the new thing this week, I receive the SMS which is a good thing that made me feel happy that my phone and phone provider able to receive sms from SAMSUNG. So once my phone receives the sms, automatically the verification code appreas on the code space and act like  it's signing in, but nothing happened as within less than a second, the verification code space comes back empty again and Resend code appears available again if I want to receive another code, and it'll keep doing that no matter how many times I receive verification code.

 

I've sent an email since last week to SAMSUNG customers support about this issue, I received a reciving confirmation email from them, but no answer about this issue till now

 

I am so sorry, I'll never use the 2 steps verification option, SAMSUNG please forgive me ...lol

Did you happen to create your Samsung account or set up two-step verification on an older phone or number?

I've also been facing the same issue over a week now. I replied on a rather old thread regarding the verification process and it seems that other users have been facing the same problem as well. You can follow the discussion here:
