Receive authorization code in iMessage app

When I sign in to my Verizonwireless account, a two-factor authorization code is sent via SMS text message to my cell phone of record. Why doesn’t this message also appear in the Verizonwireless Message+ app the same as all other messages from Verizonwireless —billing, usage etc.? This would enable signing in if I don’t have my cell phone.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I know it is confusing that you aren't able to receive that temporary PIN on non-primary devices using Verizon Message+, Gslongvzw. Since the code that is sent requires extra layers of security and features time sensitivity, this message can only be sent to the cellular device with the associated phone number on the account. Does this help clarify?
