How can I tell my iPhone to stop asking for two-factor security?

    I'm very upset (and when I say very, I mean very) with the consequences of a mistake I did the other day when I enabled two-factor security without knowing what it was. When I realised I don't want it, I entered in my iCloud account through the web and disabled it.

    But now, my iPhone and my iPad have a red bubble in the Settings app, and they keep me asking (with annoying notifications) to complete the two-factor security on them. That's even if I check the iCloud settings in my iPhone and iPad, and two-factor nightmare is disabled (in fact there's a blue text you can click if you want to enable it).

    Is there something I can do for telling my iPhone and iPad to forget it, to give up, to just shut up... in other words, to behave as an adult and stop asking for something I said I do not want now nor ever?

    Settings then click on your id at top of screen then security and turn off two factor verification

    It's off (there's even a button for enabling it), but the red bubble is still at Settings, the iPhone keeps asking from time to time to complete enabling two factor verification. It's like if the process of enabling two factor verification cannot be aborted until you complete it in all your devices, no matter if you disabled it from the web.
