I feel your pain, not a fan of all the "work" involved.
However...

Setting up 2FA is the way to go to avoid having your account compromised.
The Hello 6-digit pin probably only works on your machine, while your password roams across devices.
The way Slack handles it requires a hacker to have access to your Slack and email account, which is another barrier.
2FA can usually be set up in a way that remembers your location or device, so you don't have to authenticate every minute.
Like it or not, about 99% of hacks could've been avoided by 2FA.
Not because it's impossible to get past 2FA, but because it's a lot harder, so hackers tend to simply move on to someone who doesn't have 2FA.
