Use 2-Step Verification without your phone

Use 2-Step Verification without your phone


2-Step Verification helps keep others
from accessing your account because each time you sign in, Google
sends a short code to your phone that you type in to access your account.
This gives you 2 layers of security with something you
know your password and something you have
your phone. But what happens if you want this extra
security but you might not always have phone
service or access to your phone? Don’t worry! Here are 3 different
ways you can use 2-Step Verification without your phone.
You can set up these options ahead of time so you can be prepared. Provide a
backup phone number If you’re signing in and don’t have your
phone you can send your code to a backup phone.
Use the phone numbers of people you trust like friends or family members. Print out
back up codes. You can generate a set up 10 backup
codes on the Security section your account
page. They work just like the codes you receive on your
phone. You can print them out and keep them somewhere safe or store
them on your computer. Each code can only be used once, but you
can generate another set any time you need them on. And once you
generate a new set of codes the old ones will be deactivated. Register devices you use often If you’re signing in on a browser on a
computer you use often you can check a box so that computer
doesn’t ask for a code each time. This also works when you’re signing in
on browsers with other devices such as phones or tablets. 2-Step Verification adds extra security
to your Google Account And gives you three different options to choose from when you don’t have access to your phone.

  1. When ever i put my phone number for verification I cant get it in since it said the phone number has been used many times for verification*

  2. Phone verification is dead now. I can verify your Google business without postcard method, No address needed, No need to google username-password. permanent listing. Skype me at webgraphyx or email me: [email protected]

  3. Title says without phone

    Video shows hopeless options and subjects including a phone

    AROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR GOOGLE

  4. When I try singing into psn I need to put in my details them I need a verification code through my phone and it doesnโ€™t come through my phone help

  5. ok but what if googles gives no other option than phone verification but you dont even have a phone becouse it broke?

  6. Where to find the code is not explained. It just shows the phone number with code right next to it. I have been at this for 3 weeks now, every single day and night for 15 hours and have gotten nowhere! Someone please explain. Thanks.

  7. In 2 step verification i forget a recovery email id password but i have mobile number to verify than can i get a chance to recreate password please google help me

  8. I absolutely hate this verification system. If I'm on my android I can't check amazon to see where packages are because it sends the code to my old phone # which I no longer have. I would prefer NOT to have the verification. They want to call me every time I make a purchase and want to check on it; to me that is harassment, I no longer have the freedom to check on my purchases. I have tried to opt out to no avail. Looking for an android browser that doesn't require this; if anyone knows of one please let me know. I am on my main computer looking for one and of course it keeps sending me to how to opt in.

  9. my phone is lost and my account security to my phone security code but the problem my phone is lost please help me

  11. Why won't Google allow me to delete my old yahoo email account? Yahoo deleted it and would not allow me to retreive it.

    i find it ridiculous You tube has to be accesed by Google or social meid a sites, I don't belong to any of those groups.

    You tube should be their own entity, period.

  12. Im worried af google. My phone texted by its own It says "Google is re verifiying…" it was sent to the same random number It happened twice now. Is this damn normal?

  13. I sure as hell don't want Google to have my phone number. If the EU gave a fuck more to protect our privacy as they claim to instead of banning memes they should have spit-roasted these fuckers.

  14. his is really bad, phones are really easy to lose . I am frustrated as I have been using Gmail from the beginning. I do not have 2 step verification, yet Google only allows access by sending security code.

    If you are traveling out of the country and you have a catastrophic loss of your belongings you will not be able to access your email and your contacts when you most need them. You may not be able to receive emails from the consulate or so on. What about if you lose everything in a home fire? You may be locked out of your account. Pretty bad, it means I may have to migrate from Google. Security in this case trumps usability. Terrible. I could get a replacement American Express card through extensive security questions without my ID. Google / Gmail should allow other options.

  18. I never registered a phone number in my account and now I can't log in because i'm in another country with another device! Thank you for protecting my account from myself!

  19. Okay so I just lost my phone and I cant open my gmail account on my new phone cuz it dosnet verifies it ughh google you suck!

  20. Oh cool so if your phone gets stolen away from home you cant log in anymore. Good job. Fucking assholes

  21. whoever is the dumbass of this team that decided to create this shit, I hope you end up with cancer

  22. that is all fine and dandy if you happen to know, in advance, while signing up for an account, that if you forget your password and no longer have access to the phone number or the phone itself that you used to sign up for an account, you may as well kiss your account goodbye. It's like either you or your account has been locked away for life in a prison not far from your house. You long for your account, all you want is to get, once again, with your precious account. It's so close, yet impossibly remote. But for one little step, you'd be safely back into your account. It would be so wonderful. You'd feel like never before had you connected so perfectly. You'd get deeper than ever inside your tight, sexy little account, your passion fanned by the proximity it seemed you shared with your account: it lives, so to speak, somewhere in your laptop which you are not without access to for long periods, lest the minor withdrawal symptoms of being apat for short periods turn into something more threatening to your well-being, like the delirium of a full on Jones. Such is the lever of frustration i have felt, or almost felt, since i have been locked out of my account. i feel like i am so close to getting back in, to reconciling, so that life can resume on Easy Street, yet as in a dream, just as i'm about to get it in, i'm awakened and once again I'm Gregor-Samson-like, all nerves and fearful of what the future may hold without my love, without my hot hot mail, and i go about my day like the walking dead.

  23. Guys, found it. You dont need mobile if you turn on 'Less secure app access' option on you google account under Security settings.
    Damn! I have banged my head all around and i feel like i can get an admin job in google after this ๐Ÿ˜›
    Dear Google, I/we appreciate your concern about our account security. But, you should understand that there can be innumerable reasons why someone doesn't want to have a Z-Security for a simple email account or any other application. Dont mandate it and "atlease" dont make it so tough to enable/disable it. You are known for your simplicity, dont loose your whole idea of keeping it simple. Please ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I can't change my password because of this stupid "Trusted Mobile Device" feature.
    Come on google, why you don't just send me the security code to my Email or send me the security code to my phone number??
    Everytime I want to change things from my account it requires approval from that stupid trusted mobile device.
    I don't even OWN that stupid mobile device.

    Jesus Christ this pissed me off!!
