I moved from Snow Leopard - Yosemite - Sierra and now Mojave.

I was given to understand that at one point 2 factor authentication is mandatory. So, how come I am still able to get by without using this?

I use a Mac laptop and iPhone.

Is there some way to sync iMessages from my old phone to new one without switching on 2 factor authentication?
