@Crocmagnon Oh, I wasn't aware it's a premium feature. Anyway, yes, I can understand why people want to store 2FA along passwords, but still can't recommend it, because it takes the 2FA out of 2FA :D

I use a different system to achieve the goal. For one, I use AndOTP which allows easy and secure backups, then again, I store my backup codes in an offline password safe. And for convenience, if possible, I use FIDO2/U2F instead of TOTP.

People talk about vicarious battery anxiety when someone else is sharing their screen and their computer's battery is low. I get vicarious anxiety when I notice their browser is begging them to update but they haven't yet.
