Does Password Changer work on sites protected by Two-Factor Authentication or security questions?

Why is a "suspicious log-in attempt" displayed on a site after using Password Changer?

A "suspicious log-in attempt" notification may appear when signing in to a site after using Password Changer, because your passwords are changed through our servers when using the Password Changer feature. This is why a site may detect that you are signing in from another location and display a warning. Password Changer uses our servers to actually connect to the sites in order to update your passwords there.
