There are several options for authenticating when your smartphone does not have a network connection. The following options are perfect for traveling when you may not have internet access on all of your devices, or if you do not have access to your typical device.
1. Hardware tokens work without an internet connection. This means you can use them anywhere in the world to log into your account. More information can be found here: 2FA, Hardware Tokens and Security Keys
2. The Duo Mobile app for smartphones allows you to generate a passcode to login, even if your phone is not connected to the internet.
