Add Google Authenticator for two-factor authentication

Idea

Hello,

I recently decided to enable 2FA, but was surprised to find that SMS text messages are used for this. It's been established that this is a very insecure way to handle 2FA. Have you thought of using Google Authenticator instead? 

Here is an article on the dangers of using SMS messaging for 2FA: https://www.wired.com/2016/06/hey-stop-using-texts-two-factor-authentication/

With Best Regards,
Josh

Do you not see this in your security settings on the web?

I'm trying to set up 2FA on the web to use Google Authenticator, and it appears that text message is the only option:
