    I use GoDaddy auctions on a daily basis to purchase domains and thus I have a rather large inventory of domains in my GoDaddy account.

    Because of this, I have enabled 2-factor authentication (meaning I get a verification code on the phone whenever I wanna log in).

    However, during the last 24 hours I have not been able to receive the verification codes at all.
    I'm able to receive them from everyone else including NameCheap, PayPal etc. so I'm positive it's an issue on GoDaddy's end (wouldn't be the first!).

    Anyone else using 2-factor authentication on GoDaddy who are unable to log in as well at the moment?

    On a side note; I called their support and the only solution they could offer me is to submit a request to remove the 2-factor authentication which will take up to 72 hours.

    But removing the 2-factor authentication defeats the whole principle of account security. That's like being asked to write your pin code on your credit card.
