Updated flows for managing backup codes for 2-step verification purposes

Quick summary 

We’ve made a slight adjustment to how users create and manage backup codes for 2-step verification. Rather than generating or accessing backup codes from the 2-step verification homepage, users be taken to a dedicated backup codes page. 

2-step verification page

Here, users can generate new backup codes or re-fresh for additional backup codes, and print or download the codes as before. Additionally, we’ve added a new option to delete your backup codes.

This update will be available on web, Android, and iOS devices.
