Guys, I thought I have lost my phone with 2FA on almost all my accounts.

God sheer terror. I thought I am having a heart attack. You people make backups, note down your codes or use backup features. Whatever, but be smart.



Approving this because I find that we’re very infrequently reminded to make sure our 2FA methods are backed up.

A Monday task for everyone reading: does your organization have any accounts which use 2FA that **aren’t backed up**? If so, are you really that confident that The One True Yubikey Which Is Associated With Your AWS Root Account (or whatever) wouldn’t be lost in an office move, or after [that one person that set it up] leaves? That’s a level of organizational scrutiny I sure as hell wouldn’t want to be under if something were to go wrong.
