The first thing you'll see is a drop down menu under "What's your preferred option?" 

Click this and select the option you'd prefer to use moving forward. 




Now click the "Save" button at the bottom, then click "Verify Preferred Option" on the pop up window that appears. 


Next, it will attempt to utilize the new preferred option to authenticate. For example, if you chose "Text code to my authentication phone", you'll receive a text to your phone with a 6 digit code and you'll be prompted on your computer screen to enter this code. 


After that, you're all set! All logins that require MFA will use this default notification method moving forward.
