    That's probably the most stupid thing I've ever done, but here it is: a while ago I turned on the 2 factor authentication. I have never written down the backup codes and this week I had to perform a rollback to factory settings on my smartphone which resulted in the erasure of the Google Authenticator with all the data. Now I can't log in to FSU on my PC and the only way I can access it is on my iPad. Unless I have the misfortune of logging out on it as well.

    What can be done or all is utterly and irreversibly lost? Thanks!

    I *think* I disabled the two factor authentication (I didn't even know we had such a thing) for your account, so try it now and let me know what happens.

    Thanks! It's working! :) Have only been able to test it today though...
