I lost my two-factor verification code and I can't log in

What issue or error are you experiencing?

I tried to log in to my Local WP account to continue the process of creating my local site and it asks me for a two-factor verification code, but I changed my phone so I don’t have those codes anymore… How can I recover them or at least delete the account so I can create the site again with that e-mail address?

What steps can be taken to replicate the issue? Feel free to include screenshots, videos, etc

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
