I can only speak for myself, of course, but I am NOT prepared to allow any company to acess my mobile phone just to log-in. Why not use the system Microsoft started several years ago, by using a picture picking process as a second step, or just improve a reCatcha service to show pictures that are universal, not just American roads, and such ?

Making me jump through an extra hoop to access email would drive me away. Email security is not that important. Using 2FA for bank accounts and the like are great. But email? No thanks.

I find the 2FA system cumbersome particularly when you have several devices and/or an unexpected phone number change (e.g. lost phone). Too many steps... I truly appreciate the thoughtful, useful, informative content you provide in tom's guide.
