How about 2FA?

Sometimes a password isn't enough and people will be able to get into your account. That is why I always enable 2FA whenever I can, whether it's phone verification, email verification, etc. Would a 2FA system on SMW Central be a good idea to give your account extra security? Chances are that phone verification (like Google Authenticator) isn't worth it, though. But there are other ways to do this.

If anybody knows of a 2FA solution that is reliable, free, and available to all users, shoot me a suggestion.
I don't really see the point on a SMW board. People will hack your mail account, your steam account, your amazon account, not your SMWCentral account

I imagine an extra security layer would be appropriate for at least staff members and/or admins, as there were incidents in the past where such accounts got hacked.

I didn't know about those.

Of course we'd need a simple, easy, free way of doing 2FA if it is going to happen at all. As Romano338 said, it wouldn't be the most useful or important thing in the world unless you are a staff member or something so there'd be no point in taking this idea too far.

Practically everything I use that has 2FA uses whatever system the Google Authenticator app uses, which seems like a pretty good indicator for its freeness.
2FA has been discussed internally before. Google Authenticator is free to use but moderately complicated to implement from scratch. Moreover, it doesn't work for everyone. 2FA, especially for all users, is off the table for the time being because I don't want to invest time in what would be only a partial solution.
