This 2 minute video explains how a Google Workspace admin can generate backup codes for a user.

Codes could be used to let a user back in to their account, if that user is locked out due to a lost or misplaced security key.

Backup codes can also be used to allow a second user to join a shared account, if that account has MFA turned on, and the second user doesn't have possession of the security key. For more information on this, including examples, please see our article, How to Set Up a Security Key on Shared Google Account.
