For an 2FA authenticator option that doesn't involve cellphone #s AND have a backup option, I recommend the Microsoft Authenticator. The iOS verion stores the backup on your iCloud to keep things seperate. It does do propreitory things like generates 8 digit 2FA vs 6 for Microsoft and AD accounts, however for industry standard 2FA it is solid.


@GinYVR I should add: I use Microsoft Authenticator for my Office 365 (work) account and my personal outlook.com account, since you can authenticate by clicking Allow in the push notification and not even having to deal with a code at all.  Very handy indeed.  For everything else that isn't limited to SMS 2FA, I use Authy.
