What to do if you use two-factor authentication and can’t sign in or reset your password

In today's day and age, there are chances that your various passwords can be compromised. This can happen even if you have taken just about every precaution possible.

One of the most prevalent and popular precautions has been the introduction of two-factor authentication (2FA). For the unaware, 2FA requires a second input from the user whenever signing into your account.

With the release of iOS 11, Apple decided to bump things up a notch. Now, instead of a 100MB download limit, this has been increased to 150MB.

However, there are still those of us who don’t regularly have access to a Wi-Fi network. Thankfully, there is a nifty workaround that will allow you to bypass the 150MB restriction.
