Google 2 step verification process & the Vox

So far I haven't used google's 2 step verification process, but now that I find myself unable to sign in to Youtube on the iPad, it looks like the only way to make that process work is to enable this feature in my Google account. However, I don't want this to cause any problems accessing my Google account through the Vox.

I am wondering if anyone here is using the 2 step verification process and how that works with the Vox. Does one have to install Google's Authentication app on the Vox?

P.S. After reading all of the Google support info, it's starting to look like it would be easier if I just created another YouTube account that isn't linked to my other google account, if it's even possible to do that. All I want to do is be able to save some Youtube favorites and subscriptions on the iPad Youtube app. I know I can do that with my Vox, but, quite frankly, Youtube usually works better on my iPad. It just tends to flow more smoothly.

Edited to add that I just tried signing into my YouTube account through the safari browser on the iPad and that worked. I can also watch videos through the browser, so this is less complicated than switching to the 2 step verification process. However, security experts do seem to be recommending the switch, so I would still like some feedback on how this would work with the Vox.
