  • 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.

Discussion[edit]

I'd rather characterize this as "make Huggle support BotPasswords or OAuth". Max Semenik (talk) 19:34, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

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)
