Is there any loss of privacy while using 2 Factor authentication?
If you use Google Authenticator on an android phone (where essentially you have linked your google id), to authenticate the login of a third party website, can google link your google id with the credentials of the third party website?

from google support

"Google sends a random code to third-party sites to enable you to sign in to these sites with your Google Account. This code doesn't reveal any personal information. Also, the security of your Google Account will not be compromised by signing in to other sites with your account."

there is no official explanation that google uploads or make relation between google account and google authenticator. If we care this kind of aspect, we wouldn't use google developed android OS version or wouldn't use Google based services. If you want to be sure, just instal a android emulator on your pc,install google 2fa there and not connect it  to the internet,

there is no security problem when using google authenticator because it works offline only it is an algorithm that synchronizes the keys according to the code of the application with which you want to access and does not create any backup in the cloud,
this is why when you lose your phone it is very difficult to return to that page because it does not recover

If you save your authentication key in any of your secured hardware. You will be able to access your wallet or anything with the key itself. For example with the Google authentication. You can add a new account for same wallet with the authentication key you saved.
Then again you save the 2FA again with the new one.

Even some of the wallet have the paper 2FA option too. Its all about your wish to have as a 2FA.

For now i think it is one of the most safest.it smoothly intergrates with which ever platform hence making it difficult for hackers to penetrate.But as technology keeps on updating itself ,developers needs to upgrade to something more secure and detailed to prevent black hats from breaking the code.

In a technical way I think they can access our credentials but because they want to prove to the world how robust this product of theirs is nothing can be done to help us even in case of a lockout to our own crypto vaults which might be worth millions. I thick 3fa remains one of safest security features today.

This is very good in term of security but I think we don't need to activate the 2F Authentication, the privacy of the transaction maybe know by others. Just used a very good and hard to guess password this is the best security for our login.

2-Factor Authentication this is a very good way to protect your accounts. I prefer 2fa with snap to phone number. Google authentificator also safe, but it's better to save keys for recovery account

Google authenticator is very safe to use. You can use it even if your phone is not connected to the internet. It isone of the most used application to tighten the security of your account. I enabled all of the two factor authentication of my crypto related accounts. I highly recommend Google Authenticator for your 2FA.

Good point. Could be that you gain one safety against losing another.

I use it to protect my bitcoin wallet at all times since i dont have any of the hardware wallets. Its really recommended for very important things if you don't want others prying into your business.

As far as I know about this 2 factor authentication I never seen or heard that there is somebody loss their privacy by using this things. Even me,

while I'm using it in different exchange platform through Google Authenticator so far so good to me anyway.

I just use multi-signature wallets, that way 2FA is baked right into the protocol, with zero privacy loss. I usally go for 2 of 3 on seprate devices. That way if I lose any one (inc) the seed, I can still access wallet, but can't have a problem with others acessing unless I lose 2 devices/seeds

Google authenticator works offline and it is incrypted.It is very safe to use and your accounts has in safe security log in. Im using it with careful safekeeping of recovery code. With google authenticator you can rest assure that no one will able to steal your account online.
