    Useless answer James. As others above have stated there is NO option to remove devices as you state as there is no such option

    JAMES, come-on, you guys need to think a little more critically! There needs to be a government accountability office that can enforce this bad behavior, peoples lives are being ruined by your incompetency.

    My phone is completely bricked and had the authenticator app on it.
    Logging in asks me for another email nd cellphone (both fine, as I got a replacement phone working)
    After I reset my password, it asks me AGAIN for the authenticator app!

    FIX THIS F*&)(^)&*^ING BUG!

    Cant get into bank account, cant pay employees, can't pay medical bills! You guys are going to get a class-action lawsuit!

    I like to say the same, Useless answer James. As others above have stated there is NO option to remove devices as you state as there is no such option.
