You will need two security keys. I use and like Google Titan Security Keys. You can get them from the Google Store or ebay or anywhere else.

There is a bundle for $50 that contains 2 keys (1 USB, and one Bluetooth/NFC key). The reason why you need 2 keys is you will use one as a main key, while you will keep the other as a backup in case you lose your main one.

If you lose access to your account and you lose the keys as well, then your only option is to contact Google and submit a request. They will take a few days to verify it is you and that account is yours before granting you access again. If you are however a G Suite user, then your G Suite admin will be able to easily grant you access again to your account.

To get started on this, you need to go to the below URL and follow the onscreen instructions: https://myaccount.google.com/advanced-protection/landing
