How it works:
Enable 2-factor auth in your service’s settings. Download an app on your smartphone such as Google Authenticator. Add your service to the Authenticator app. Now, the app will constantly generate unique time-limited codes that you type in when you login to the service.
Note: Avoid SMS (text) authentication methods. It’s insecure.
