@MikaelJakobssonEinstein Neither do I.
Having a mobile should not be assumed just to gain access to an email address and a blog.
I think that 2FA should not necessarily include a phone number and also alternatively offer the use of a second email address, which would also be more secure. Being mostly free, it is not a problem to have multiple email addresses (I have 5 + 2 temporary emails for registration in certain places where I do not intend to stay)

@Catweazle Yeah but several people have only one mail account and using a temporary one for 2FA or "forcing" to do a secondary mail account for that purpose is not nice.
I'm not even sure how this could be solved without lowering overall security other than "contact team" option.
@Hadden89 , true, I mentioned it as a minimal alternative if 2FA is required. I personally hate the 2FA system and consider it outdated and unsafe. A simple security question is much less invasive and safer.Currently it is not a big problem to intercept a mobile, so 2FA by SMS adds a risk instead of subtracting it.
Well, it's a personal opinion.

How is a security question better? Most cases it will be something with a predictable answer, or an answer that is easily grabbed from the person's Facebook page. Absolute best case the security question is just a second password (if you do like me and just use a password generator to generate answers to those stupid questions).
@Komposten , Anyone who can get the answer to a Facebook security question will have even less trouble getting a phone number. Regardless of this, there is always a risk of leaving a phone number in a registry of pages such as Facebook, whose privacy policies are conspicuous by their absence.Until then, my neurons are harder to hack than any device.
