Fun random thought popped into my head. In my haste, ages ago, in turning on MFA for lots of accounts I realized I created a circular dependency. If I lose my phone, I can't get into my Google account because I have the password in a password manager, that is protected by Google's Authenticator. Ooops. How does everybody else protect their accounts without creating circular dependencies? #security #mfa #2fa
@j_angliss Retain backup 2FA codes on paper, and don't use remote-first password managers, in my case.
I am covered on the backup codes. I hadn't thought about another/offline password manager. Nice idea.
