Hey Marc, 

Thank you for reaching out to the community. Using text messaging with 2FA is not secure and is not recommended. Please see this article for how this has been exploited. https://www.cnet.com/news/privacy/do-you-use-sms-for-two-factor-authentication-heres-why-you-shouldnt/

Here is a list and instructions on how to send an email to a phone as a text message. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind Regards,
