How to use Google 2-step verification with an older smartphone?
delia25 1 year ago
I've finally started practicing what I preach and using 2 step verification to log into my Google account since so much of my online life is so deeply integrated with Google - email, voice, wallet, play, et al. One of my Android phones is an old Motorola running 2.2 Froyo. Apparently, you can only use 2-step verification with Android devices that are after 2.3 Gingerbread. I use the old phone as a WiFi only device and not as my main phone, but it will be pretty useless if I can't log on to Google accounts. Is there a way to use the old 2.2 phone with 2-step authentication?
