In the Security section of my Apple ID account page (https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage), I have a “Trusted phone number”. The help text says:
Trusted phone numbers are used [...] to recover your account if you lose access.
However, I don’t want my account to be recoverable using a phone number, because phone numbers aren’t secure.
I have two-factor authentication turned on, and I have several Apple devices that support it. I have my two-factor recovery key saved in a password manager that’s backed up in several places. In short, I’m happy that I’ll be able to recover my account if required, without a trusted phone number.
I’ve seen guides showing how to remove trusted phone numbers when more than one is attached to the account (you click the little cross next to the phone number). But I only have one trusted phone number, and there’s no cross next to it.
How can I turn off the ability to access my Apple ID account using a “trusted” phone number?
