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.
