Hello Ronni, I suspect something has changed since that support file was created in Jun 3, 2016.
When I go to the Apple ID account page in OSX, and click Edit in the Security area as per the direction, there are five options: PASSWORD Change Password… TRUSTED PHONE NUMBERS Add a Trusted Phone Number… Trusted phone numbers are used to verify your identity when signing in and to recover your account if you lose access. APP-SPECIFIC PASSWORDS Generate Password… Use an app-specific password when signing in to an app or service not provided by Apple.Learn more. NOTIFICATION EMAIL xxxx@email address Remove Edit Email Address… Apple uses this notification email to send you important account and security related information. TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION On Your password and a verification code will be required when your Apple ID is used to sign in on a new device or browser. Learn more. Turn Off Two-Factor Authentication As per my previous email, I’ve found a solution which works. Apple just needs to update it’s help files, unless I have missed something.
