Two factor authentication (2FA)

Post by Ideas Bot » Mon Sep 11, 2017 9:22 pm

Add support for the two factor authentication in phpBB forum.
2FA is the standard now. Wordpress, Joomla, others have it. Google authenticator or similar is a proven tool.
It's time to build it in phpBB to provide better users protection.

Been using Two factor authentication (2FA) (Via extension) on my forum for a year or more now. I agree, it should be built in to phpBB as standard.

Don't have a problem with it as such, just as long as it is a user option.

Yes, opt in for users. Ability to use something like Google Authentication app.

Would be ideal for admin accounts and moderator accounts.

It should be option for users, of course but built in phpbb. Now, I am using Google Authenticator in joomla sites and Direct Admin panel.

...and if you are not forced to use a data octopus for it. What about the old school way to put in an Q&A or phone number or any kind of normal things we don't need Google, Facebook or NSA for?

Starting from v.4.8, phpMyAdmin supports 2FA. I use it.
So, now I have 2FA in the Direct Admin Panel, phpMyAdmin, Joomla. Only phpBB remained in my system without this security :(
