I store some coins in exchanges tho, but not BTC, only alts, if you store them all in wallets, you miss all the action  Undecided

Cracking 2FA eh.. was it 2FA to an e-mail or phone?  I figure if you are using 2FA with an e-mail it kind of defeats the purpose.

Bittrex has only Google Authenticator.

Sure, unless the site using it is vulnerable.

I thought 2FA was always to a second device separate from your computer, like a mobile phone or something. Can it mean just to email? If your computer is infected, then your email password is as compromised as your exchange passwords.

It can be done via only e-mail... so you could do it all on the same device.. making it completely pointless.
