2 Factor Authentication question

edited April 2018 in Lounge

So when we set up 2FA we can scan an QR code, or manually type in a long code. I saved this code to try some ideas... I added this code on Google Authentication and it was in-sync with the TOTP on my Authy app that I did the day before. Now will this always work, and pick up no matter how long it's been? Is this another thing to save in the Emergency Kit we can save/print to keep?

Just trying ideas to have an emergency way in.

    As long as both of those apps are operating as designed then yes, they should always match.

    That’s an interesting thought. Thanks.
