Two Factor Authentication
« on: November 26, 2019, 11:05:26 pm »
I have now enabled optional Two Factor Authentication security for forum accounts, you can enabled it here:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/profile/?area=tfasetup

It supports Authenticator apps and email.
Would be nice if it supported hardware keys but the package doesn't have that option.

Is there really a great danger that someone might hack my EEVblog account, and post something sensible.

Not really.
It's more valuable for me and the other admin/mod accounts that can do serious damage.
