2FA Advisory - Backup your recovery codes - Albus - 08-29-2016

Had an incident earlier which has left my phone defunct (crushed). While I have most of my codes backed up on an encrypted drive, that's floating around in a box somewhere as a result of the Admin Relocation Project, there are a few that aren't on that drive currently, or I may have neglected to backup. As an example, I'm locked out of Discord temporarily on most of my devices where I was not signed in.

Do yourself a favor and backup your codes now and keep them stored safely and accessibly. Also ensure that you maintain them.

Edit: I've since regained access to Discord. Sadly, along with the loss of the phone I've lost a few BTC-related accounts that were not funded. Oh well, transaction history is easily re-established.
