  • Two Factor Authentication Question

    Hey Chaps,

    So I am looking to enable Two Factor on my site a couple of question.

    1. Would a moderator have to enter the 2FA details in every time he or she does inline moderation, or do they only need to authenticate once per session ?
    2. Is 2FA something that can be done on a use level yet ? If not where do I vote for this as I think this should now be a standard security feature.

    1. Every time they have to create a session for Adminstrator/Moderator actions. By default, these last an hour.
    2. No. It isn't available on the user level. The feature is really design to protect the operation of the system, not users. There is probably a feature request but I can't find it at the moment.
