I am a retired person who mainly sits at home. I don't need a cell phone. Will the change in authentication methods coming to GitHub force me to buy a cell phone? Are there alternatives?


GitHub has been using 2FA with email for a while. I couldn't find anywhere where they said they will be forcing users to signup with mobile phones. Email should do fine for the foreseeable future.
