How to turn on 2FA without a phone number?

Go to in a web browser.

Here you have to log in to your Google account.

After login, the option of "Security" will appear in the navigation panel. Click on it.

Now go to Settings under "Security" and click on the option "How you sign in to Google".

Now here you have to click on "2-Step Verification".

Now click on "Get Started" and make settings.

Here you will get three options which will include a mobile number, Google prompt, and security keys.

If you want to use 2FA without a phone number, you can choose either the Google Prompt or the Security Keys option. If you choose the Google prompt, a notification will be sent during login to the phone that already has a Gmail login. If you choose security keys, then whenever you log in to Gmail, you will need a physical security key which is like a pen drive. So it would be better if you choose Google Prompt.
