Apple ID Two Factor Authentication Notification

Anyone know if there is a way to get this to permanently stop bothering us besides enabling it? We've been hitting the "Not Now" option every day here in my office for the last few days. In the past this actually stopped it but now...

Nope. I still get my updates. I do have to login to the app store to get them though. Logging into the app store doesn't log you into iCLoud.

Is there no other device that uses that iCloud account? I have had that a few times but I just follow what it says and it is done. All you really get isa  numeric code on another device using that iCloud account. You punch that number into the computer asking and you are all set. I do agree it can be annoying but it is not complicated to authenticate the computer.
