Photoshop: All I wanted is to crop a photo

BUT NOOOO!!!  For some reason Adobe decided I had to be forced out of Photoshop, go to the other room and get a code on my cell phone (which I leave out of my studio on purpose), go to my password list and look up the Adobe Password, UPDATE the creative cloud program, then FINALLY allow me back into my programs.  What I USED to like about Adobe is they didn't bug me about the programs I PAY THEM A LOT OF MONEY for. 

I could sit down at my PC, open a program, and start working.  Now instead of creating the unique design I had in my head I am grousing about having to go to the other end of the house, breaking my concentration, looking up the code and password, then finding this feedback forum where I am certain my concerns will be completely ignored by Adobe.

I hope they don't ignore it. We shouldn't have to get a code and password to use any Creative Cloud program. They're supposed to check in the background that we're paid up and legit, not interrupt us. We're supposed to be able to work completely offline for a length of time determined by our type of subscription.  I haven't had this with any program except the FREE Adobe Reader, which wouldn't let me use it to look at a PDF I had created on that computer. At first they asked for my password every week or so. Then they insisted on texting me a passcode that I had to enter, then after that give them my password. And they knew who I was. I wasn't signed out and signing back in.  I have NO idea what this is all about, or that others were experiencing something that sounds just like what I've experienced.

I finally deleted the program, using a cleaner-helper to get rid of all the detritus. Then reinstalled as if I'd never used it before. So far I haven't been asked again, but it's only been about a week and I don't always use it daily. And yes, I don't think it should have happened at all, either.
