    I want to deactivate the two factor authentification. But there isn't a button to deactivate it under https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage in the "Password and Security tab". It's on but there is no possibility to set it off.

    Have Apple removed the option to turn it off for all users?

    I don't have this blue text. After "Learn more." there is no link.

    It's an AppleID i have created today. I try to wait a few days.

    You may want to contact Apple about this. Your organization settings could be preventing you from disabling 2FA.

    If I am not mistaken, you have to wait 48 hours after creating a new account and activating 2FA, before you can turn it off. At least I have had to in the past.

    Sounds like something is wrong, if you are sure it has been at least 48 hours. Contact Apple.

    Is there a way to contact Apple without phone? Chat or Mail?

    I don't want to derail your thread too much but I work in IT and security is one of my jobs, so have to ask:

    Why are you trying to disable 2FA? At least in my experience once you've enabled it and logged in, it mostly stays out of the way unless you log into a new device. And even then it's only a minor inconvenience.

    2FA adds so much security for so little inconvenience that it seems like a no brainer to me.
