Here's my second tech question of the day: we have e-mail addresses using G-Mail, Yahoo and MSN (Outlook) that we will need to access while in Europe. We have complex passwords, but none of us has the 2-step verification in place. We will be accessing our emails through the tablets and phones we normally use at home, while on hotel WiFi.
We hesitate to do the 2-step verification because the second step is usually having a code texted to you and we will not have our usual cell phone with us. It would seem that trying to set up a verification once we have left the U.S. using the international number our new SIM card assigns us is just asking for trouble.
Have had tech friends suggest lots of doo-dads we can carry to address this, but we each have one carry on for 6 weeks/two climates. However, being that our trip IS for 6 weeks, being assured we have access to our inboxes is rather critical.
Have any of you experienced issues with these email hosts when you tried to login from Europe just using your password? Thanks so much for your thoughts.
