    I'd like to turn on 2 Step Verification for all the security pros.

    However, in the event that I lose my phone, or simply want to track it using "Find my Phone", how do I get into my account (since i don't have my phone).

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Unforgiven ...eschew obfuscation...

    I set up both my wife's phone and my google voice number as backup devices, so I can send a code to them. It under the Account | Security | Two Step section. The link to add / view backup numbers isn't as obvious as I think it should be, but it is there.

    When you set it up it gives you a bunch of codes, write them down and keep them in a handy place.
    (I should find mine and write them down and keep them in a handy place :D )

    You log in to your Gmail account on a pc to track your device and also to remotely wipe it
