I received an email from Google today that says, starting 6 days from now, after I enter my password I'll need to complete a second step on my phone to log in.

The problem is that I'm overseas, so I cannot use my US simcard. I travel about 6 months per year, to various countries.

I could change my phone number to my local number, but the next time I switch countries I will not be able to log in to switch it again, because my local simcard will not work in the next country. Any suggestions?


You should deactivate the "2-Step Verification" feature in your Google Account by setting this profile setting option off under https://myaccount.google.com/security

Ideally you should do this before the six days are over.
