Having said that, I don’t understand the issue with 2FA as I have successfully withdrawn £400 as a test, followed by a four figure amount this week, simply by logging in with a user name, password and code sent to my mobile and then requesting the withdrawals and entering a new code sent to my mobile. No downloading apps etc, simples!
But not everyone has a mobile phone signal (lots of hills in the west country and I thought in Yorkshire too) and some have walls nearly 2 foot thick. And some don't have a mobile phone. Guilty on all counts, m'lud.
Apologies, I was assuming mobile phone ownership and a signal.
