Enabling two factor authentication hassle
I want to enable 2FA on my account for the obvious reason that my primary Xfinity email acct. is tied to various other important accounts. Gain control of my primary email and a bad actor will have an easier time changing passwords on those other accounts. When I go into Xfinity to setup 2FA, the process requests a verified personal email address in addition to a mobile #. My mobile number is attached already. When I try and enter my primary Xfinity email address I get an error "This email address is already associated with an Xfinity account". No Duh. I only have the primary email address and other sub addresses but they are all @comcast.net adresses. I could set up a Gmail email but I don't want to run 2FA through Gmail or an outside 3rd party email. Why isn't my mobile number sufficient for 2FA? My bank does it that way as well as other critical services I use. I don't want to use my sub primary @comcast email accounts because they were intended for use with non-important stuff and they are more exposed as a result.
