    I don't get it… why isn't the Google Authentication app secure enough? The only cases I'm aware of where hackers bypassed 2 step authentication is when they trick people into actually giving them the authentication code by claiming someone logged into their account and request the authentication code over social media, text, etc. You'd have to be pretty dumb to fall for this as you never send your authentication code anywhere but when logging into the site.
    It seems like you're more likely to lose the key(s) than you are to get hacked with 2 step authentication. But I suppose if Google sets it up where you can request a new key be mailed to you if you lose it then that might be ok. But a key can be stolen… an encrypted phone with your Google Authentication app still has a layer of security even if the phone is stolen. You could remote wipe the phone before they hack into the phone.

    That thing has no point. The hacker can get into the Account of the Person I'm sending an e-mail.
