  1. I have always wondered about this. First off; we have chosen not to have a cell phone. (EMF) Laptops are wired and not wireless. Our home phone is with Ooma. Not sure how I have done trying to filter out the threats of the EMF. Since it is depending on the internet would it work the same If I supplied my number. There is an option of text or phone call. I’m assuming that a regular “old fashion” phone line wouldn’t work. With all this said, I have passed by the security offered with this authentication option. (Gmail does this as well.)
