Solved! Go to Solution.
Not just you. Very frustrating. Sprint's website has been atrocious the past few years. It constantly errors on multiple browsers. I thought the security change would end once their website update was done, but no. Bleh.
This has been happening to me for weeks. EVERY single time, if I log in 20 times a day I have to do this 20 times. Same computer, same network, same browser (though I've tried multiple locations, ip's evertyhing and nothing changes.)
This is insane - our username and PW is sufficient like every other more secure site (banking, IRS, etc) and they can always do ONE added security check per new device if they need to. Why every time? This is ridiculous
Trying to get an answer from chat or FB is like talking to a robot. Every response comes from someone different who hasn't bothered to read previous messages and cuts and pastes gems like instructions on how to do exactly what we have been doing for 3 weeks - thanks so much for that award winning help.
First they said it's a website glitch, they are aware of it and it's being worked on.
Next they say its permanent, for EVERYONE!
Last they said it's permanent only for SOME people....
Anyone from Sprint willing to research this and figure out what is really going on?
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us. We are focused on protecting our customer’s personal and account information and your online security is very important to us. There are many factors that can drive this identity validation, but the leading driver is logging on from a different device, this may also occur when checking out on sprint.com and remaining idle for more than 120 minutes. At this moment it is not possible to disable this verification step from your online account, please accept our apologies if this causes any inconveniences to any of you.
@ RpriddyII, I would like to look into this further, is the SMS verification code being sent to another subscriber on your account?

Like I mentioned to the last 3 people who cut and pasted that form response - NO, it's not any of those things. It is not a new device (its a PC and the same one I've used the past year daily to log in to my account.) Not a different browser. SAME exact one I log into 2-3 times daily for 1+ years.
So now if I log in 5 times a day from my home pc I have to do this FIVE separate times. This is insanity. The IRS doesnt do this. Banks do not do this. Medical sites do not do this. This is completely ridiculous. One time for a new device is fine, EVERY TIME FROM THE SAME DEVICE IS a glitch.
We would like to report this issue to our Specialize Tech Support Team. Please check your inbox and reply to the private message that I just sent you.

I assume you did not mean me, as I have no message - is there some way you can take a report for this to tech support or can I?
I am also getting this same security page. Not only does it keep asking over and over, but its not even secure. In the past month or so I have been trying to get into the Sprint site and it wants to send a security code. When it sends the code it ONLY works with the default messenger app on my phone that I dont use so I never get the code. On top of that I still havnt applied the code and I have been let into the site on occasion, then sent back to the security page again a few minutes later. That isnt secure at all! How can someone log into a site to pay for a bill when you cant get in?
I wouldn't mark this 'solved'. Nothing has been solved except venting our frustration with Sprint's ridiculous glitches/security policy

Instead of just cutting and pasting generic canned replies over and over (that are incorrect) how about actually LISTENING to what the issue is and getting the correct department involved
NO one is having trouble accesing sprint.com
MANY people are getting repeated (every time) pin requirements where the 8 digit pin is texted that you have to enter. Every single time, from the same device. It's not a security thing. It's happening CONSTANTLY
It is not an "additional security check" it is a GLITCH. When someone uses an industry standard username and password like all other sites, on a pc and browser they've been using for years, multiple times a day, there is no need for a repeated 8 digit pin to be texted
