Recovery codes for 2FA?


(Gergely Imreh) #1

Hey! The 2FA feature of Discourse is great to have, we are enabling it for all our admins to keep the forums safer. On the other hand, it seems to be missing one commonly used feature, recovery codes (that is a handful of pre-generated codes, that can be used in place of the 2FA token, if the 2FA device is lost - e.g. one’s phone breaks an needs to reinstall).

Is it something that I’ve missed, or is there really no such function yet? If it doesn’t exists, is it in the plans?

You haven’t missed anything. That feature doesn’t exist yet and is indeed planned :wink:

Right now you’d need to contact another admin for manual intervention. It is on #releases though for 2.1.
