That's a claim of being non-custodial?

If the email is relevant for your security, somebody can grant you access and
that somebody ... has access. That does not sound non-custodial.

Now if we would give them the benefit of the doubt and assume you restored the
same seed on all devices then yes, the blockchain would make sure of keeping
your devices in sync but somehow "protected by an intense bank-level security
protocol" does induce the opposite of trust.
