When I travel abroad, it often happens that my original carrier is not valid, which means that sometimes I have to change my phone number to another carrier when I am in another country. So effectively I have two phone numbers.

Is there a way to use two recovery phone numbers in Google?

Yes, you can.

  1. Go to your account
  2. Under Sign-in & security, go to Signing in to Google
  3. Go to 2-Step Verification
  4. Under Backup options for when your primary is unavailable
  5. Click Add a phone number

To use it, when you login, click Try another way to sign in under the code box. You will be presented with a list of options where you will find the second phone number as one of them.
