    I'm pretty bad about misplacing my phone. Usually, I can just use Google device manager to make the phone ring to find it. But occasionally, I'll be logged out of Google and it will require a text message verification to log back in. If you can imagine, it's pretty hard to verify my account

    It's pretty hard to verify my account via text if I can't find my phone. Is there anyway around this?

    Hi

    Yes, rather than SMS code, use Google authenticator, or much better, Authy which can be installed on multiple devices.
