***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Certain texts showing on phone, but not web-based Verizon messaging

In 2019, @Ann154 posted "Secure messages like verification codes can't be received on the web-based application or any other device besides the phone associated with the phone number the message was sent. This is a security feature to prevent unauthorized access to your messages."

In the intervening years, has this been changed to an option rather than a baked-in feature? I hate having to get the phone for a verification code, doctor appointments, bank notifications, etc. when I am sitting at my desk with web texting open. The phone is not always nearby. It would be so much easier if I could enable the feature.

Please request this feature if it does not exist.
