Suggestion: Emergency Kit à la two factor authentication

Hello friends,

I have a suggestion for You know that you can additionally secure your 1Password account with two-factor authentication. The problem with this is if you lose your device with the authentication app it can cause trouble.

You point out in the support article that you can backup the secret when you set up two-factor authentication - so that you can restore access if you lose your device with the authenticator app.

The thing about that is: Not everyone knows this. So I suggest that after you enter the 6-digit code to set up two-factor authentication, a document containing the secret should be automatically created. The document should then be made available for download, e.g. for printing.

I am looking forward to your opinions.

Have a great day.

Thanks for reading.
