2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Admins and stewards/2FA and Huggle
- Problem: Admins with 2FA cannot use Huggle. In wikis with a small number of admins this is a big issue - it means choosing between being very effective doing maintainance or securing admin accounts. A two-velocity system of admins develops, where those who use Huggle end up doing most of the work and others can't keep up.
- Who would benefit: All admins in projects where Huggle is enabled.
- Proposed solution: Make 2FA compatible with Huggle.
- More comments:
- Phabricator tickets: T180279 - Enable 2FA normal login. Also semi-related: T137076 - Add OAuth support for Huggle and T178818 - --login option - support bot passwords
Bot passwords do not require any dedicated support; they are just passwords. You should be able to use Huggle with a bot password even if you have 2FA. --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 00:37, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
