Since about two weeks ago, every time I try to log on to my banks or brokerage account, I am required to answer security questions or request an access code via email or text. What setting(s) can I change to remedy this situation?

All my banks send a code to my email. That's not a browser issue. You will need to verify the security settings on the bank(s) site.

Here is what I see at Wells Fargo. Just look for this in the security or account access settings for your bank and turn it off if you don't want the extra security.

2-Step Verification at Sign-On lets you activate an additional layer of security when you access your accounts online by entering a unique Advanced Access verification code sent to your mobile device or phone, or from an RSA SecurID® device.
