Is the second-factor backup code reusable?


I used my 2-factor backup code today (Google Authenticator).

  1. Is that code re-usable for next time?
  2. If not, how do I get a new 2-factor backup code?


Not that i am aware of. That’s a one time password.
Disable and re-enable 2FA to get w new backup code.

Even it is still valid i’d generate a new one. Once used I’d treat it as compromised.
