Just noting for the record:
... about an hour ago, I got "timed out" of access to my Gmail account when I turned on my travel computer. So, I re-logged in and got the expected result screen, demanding the numeric code that ostensibly had been sent to my mobile phone.
In fact, no message was sent.
I could not get a voice call sent to my backup phone, either, no matter how many ostensibly helpful Help page links I clicked.
I spent about another ten minutes trying to get the two-factor's second message sent to me, one way or another. Nothing worked. Just radio silence.
And so, I went on to other things, on the Internet, where I did not need a Google Password to do something.
A short while later, my phone buzzed, almost interminably, to let me know that I had seven or nine new text messages.
Of course they were all from Google: confirmation codes from when I bad wanted to log in, fifteen minutes or so ago, earlier.
#firstworldproblems? Eh, maybe. Yes, in this case.
But imagine if I had really, seriously, needed immediate access to my email. Like, a life or death situation. Or even some sort of Important Business Deal.
Just saying. When you promise to be all things for all people, you must be taken to task for episodes like this. The length of tonight's failure was unacceptable, Google.
