Just wondering here. I hope people here are using Two Factor Authentication for most things, so how would you cope if you lost your devices when you were on holiday? Presumably you do not take your backup codes with you (they might disappear too). Sure you can buy a new phone but when you come to set yourself up you hit the problem of 2FA. Send the code to your email? Your email is protected by 2FA keyed to your phone. And round you go.

Something similar might arise if your house burns down and you don't have an offsite backup.

Oops! So, what did you do?
