Are "second-factor backup codes" still a thing?

When I first signed up to Cloudflare and set up 2FA, I was given a “Second-factor backup code”. I’ve now changed 2FA app and updated my recovery keys, but I saw no mention of “Second-factor backup code”.

Is this still a thing?

Hi @marcus.wallen,

I believe they are, yes.

There are instructions to regenerate them at:

There seem to be, or used to be, two different sets.

The backup codes you linked to are 9 numbers, while the “Second-factor backup code” is 30 odd alphanumeric characters. That’s the one I’m wondering about.
