Can't access Wells Fargo with Mint and Two-Step sign-in (enhanced security) feature. When disabled it works, are there plans to allow WF enhanced security with Mint?

There is an issue with Mint and Wells Fargo Two-Step sign-in (enhanced security) feature.  When the enchanced security feature is enabled with Wells Fargo on wellsfargo.com it requires a text code to continue to the site or mobile app.  With this enabled Mint shows there is a problem with my account and to goto wellsfargo to verify my identity.  There is no way to do this on wellsfargo.com and I have called  Wells Fargo there is no issue on their end.   I should note that when I disable the enhanced security Mint shows my account is working fine.   Are there plans to allow Wells Fargo enhanced security with Mint?

I was able to work around this by creating a read-only account under my Wells Fargo account online. I used the read-only account with Mint.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
