Most two-factor login systems allow for hardware other than a phone. At Princeton, some people will keep a "token" in the lab, which generates a code to enter for authentication. There is also the option of generating an SMS text message with a code,
which may pop up on a phone even in sleep mode and may not require actually touching the phone.
Most systems only require dual authentication once a day, so another option some use is to change a glove to access the phone (usually wearing two gloves on one hand, remove the one glove to access the phone, then go back to the keyboard).
