Hi,

I changed my koodo number and forgot to remove step-2 verification by that number to my gmail and now when I am trying to access my email account, It sends verification code to my previous number. I don’t what should I do, can I reactivate my previous number for time to fix this or there’s any other way.

I'm sure there's other way to authenticate.

This is the risk of 2FA with a cellphone number for text.

This is why I'm not 100% sold on this form of security yet.
