Hi Susan

No. That said, we use iPhones exclusively for that very reason – to not bother.

As for 2FA/MFA – learn to live with it. It is here to stay and adds tremendous security.
If you haven’t added 2FA to your mail account, do it now. Seriously.

Microsoft offers a neat app for the purpose. It also works for most other 2FA tasks – no need to use Google or third-party apps.

A while back we discussed cash apps. Now I'm wondering if any of you use any
kind of virus/malware protection on your phone?
