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'm not familiar with postal but most 2FA provide backup codes that are one time use that you can print out or keep safe somehwere for exactly this scenario. Does posteo not have that?

Oh, I don't know. I usually make a note of those things, but don't seem to have it in my password manager.
