As johnmaguire2013 guessed, we will have a browser extension which will request a 2FA code from the mobile app. The mobile app will receive a push notification and ask the user whether they would like to allow or deny the request for a second factor of authentication. The user only needs to click one button on their phone and the 2FA code is securely sent to the browser where everything else related to submitted the 2FA code can be automated.

The browser extension can integrate with any site that currently supports 2FA without any integration or changes required on the part of the sites.

Let me know if you have any more questions! Do you think you be willing to change your 2FA workflow to the one described above? If no, what are some of your concerns, thoughts, etc? Any and all feedback is appreciated!
