    I want to turn on 2 factor Autherization with Google Authenicator
    my question is if I loose access to my phone or the Google app malfunctions for any reason like sync with server>>>> Will the host provider be able to access my account and turn off the 2 factor feature??

    The host provider should be able to access the server from the VPS node where the VPS is hosted.
