Google 2FA “Sorry, we can’t fulfill this request at this time. Please try again later or use a different phone number.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/14

A while ago while first securing a bunch of accounts with a phone number, then later replacing them with 2FA hardware, I got this error message:

Sorry, we can’t fulfill this request at this time. Please try again later or use a different phone number.

This seems to have to do with the fact that if have gotten about 10 2FA messages a day, then it cannot be used to add a new phone number to an account. The phone number still can be used to verify existing accounts where the phone number was already registered.

Retrying after 24 hours usually works.

PSA: If you were signed out of your Google account tonight, don’t worry [Update] – 9to5Google

I had to re-logon to my mobile phone, but not my web browser. It seems this was due to a glitch at Google, but doesn’t remove my suspicion when I see this message come up in the future. So I did check account activity at these links:
