Can Not Change Phone Numbers in Security Settings with Two-Factor Authentification On

1 0 0

So, I recently changed phone numbers, and I have been attempting to remove my old number and add my new one in Security Settings for my Shopify Account. I do have two-factor authentification on for my account with my prior number.

When I go to do so, Shopify asks me to reauthenticate my Google Account. I proceed to log in to the Google Account. Then it asks me to "Check my Phone" for a verification code. I do not have access to that number anymore, so I proceed to log in with a recovery code. Upon logging in, I go to Security Settings again. Then I attempt again to remove the old number and add my new one.

Sadly, Shopify asks me reauthenticate again and again, no matter how many times I authenticate my account.
Is there a fix to this? Please help.
