Two-factor authentication (2FA) codes can be generated via email or an authenticator app on a moblie device, like a phone or tablet.

If you've got a new phone or other mobile device, you can set it up for two-factor authentication (2FA).

2FA is only affected if you change the device you want to use, not your phone number.

Because you can only receive codes on one device at a time, you'll need to change your 2FA device as follows.
