One of the problems in crypto, has been the growing use of Authy 2FA to secure client accounts from third party access. As many of us have seen, having Paybase, Zencloud, Coinbase, and many other accounts requiring Authy, has presented issues relating to separating accounts from the Authy dependency of one smartphone and one number (e.g. the App). If one is selling a cloudmining account, such as was the case with Zencloud, there has been no easy method to do so without changing access to other accounts with the same smartphone number, such as Coinbase or Paybase.
As is the case with Coinbase, the only resolution for users has been to close the Coinbase account, opening a new account in its place. This is even more problematic considering that, if you have a fully verified account at Coinbase, starting a new one requires 30 days to complete the new verification process. Coinbase will not change the smartphone number on your account.
Some websites allow you to disable your Auth 2FA, while others will not (Paybase allows you to disable Authy 2FA). Moreover, some websites allow you to change your number registered for Authy, while others do not. How can you better organize your various Authy 2FA accounts without having to perform painful changes, each time you sell a cloudmining account?
What if there was a way to have Authy enabled on multiple accounts without having to have multiple smartphones (or a dual sim smartphone)? Would this be advantageous to anyone?
Well, I finally have found a way, and you can use a different number for each account requiring Authy, while having all of the accounts pointing to the same, single number smartphone.
Has anyone figured out another workaround to this dilemma that still only required one smartphone and phone number?
Before I write the solution, I want to hear how others have done it thus far.
