Auto Deletion of 2FA code texts

Below is an article about the subject.

I need some education - why is this a big deal. Surely the codes are randomly selected. Certainly somebody might learn/guess my Medicare login. Maybe they will get my password, but gosh, golly begeebers when they try to log in from a machine Medicare does not recognize how would a 2FA code I got last week or even an hour earlier be useful at logging into my Medicare account?


I wouldn’t call it a big deal, but some people can’t stand clutter. These 2-factor authentication text messages can clutter up the texting app on your phone. This is an uncluttering feature. Security has nothing to do with it.

Or at least that’s what I believe is going on.
