Apple has stopped publishing my apps in appstore, because my appleId has to be enabled with "Two-factor authentication" first. Now I have no MAC nor any iOS Phone / Tablet anymore.

How can I enable "Two-factor authentication" without to be bounded to any physical device. I can still manage the disabled apps in "Apple Store Connect", but I am forced to enable "Two-factor authentication".

No, you require a physical device to set up two-factor authentication.

Two-factor authentication is available to iCloud and iTunes users with at least one device that's using the latest iOS or macOS.

Availability of two-factor authentication for Apple ID
