How to turn off login verification txt msg in Interactive broker? and the site seems very unresponsive at times

I find it quite annoying every time I login to my account they have to send me a verification code in my phone. what the heck? their system should know it's from a secure device, secure IP, right?

I checked user setting and the secure login, there is no option I can turn the txt msg off. any idea? Thanks.

also, I just notice the site sometimes could stop working? have you experienced that?

What is this means?
"
Secure Login Device Sharing
If you have access to another user that is using a Secure Login Device, you can share that device between multiple usernames. Enter the username and password of the user that has the device you would like to share."

I tried, then got this: You cannot use your own username for device sharing.

Thanks for the info. however I don't use phone. and I don't plan to use phone, even my 34" monitor is not big enough for me. so I guess there is no comparison between phone and pc.
