Today in dumb things I've done, so you can try not to do the same thing...

I just realized I lost my OTP app in the phone switch, so I lost web access to my email account with Posteo. Hopefully I can prove it's me to customer support and get it fixed. The security of two factor auth is backfiring on me right now so I might stick with the text message version from now on.

@cameron I convert the QR codes to the URL type thing that they are, and keep them in a local password manager.

I think it still counts as 2FA, because if a local computer is compromised, then it's over anyway... But, it;s better than SMS or letting the authenticator program sync somewhere.

That's a good idea. I'm getting it sorted out though. And I'll sure never make this mistake again!
