I read daily the lending section of this forum and I see people who come back after a period of great inactivity , some months the usual time and ask for some fishy loans even without collateral. Some person there were saying these hacked accounts are probably from the leaked database of this forum. Now that made me wondering and I am fearing for my account as I post a lot even when I am at work and I am using Windows which is well known for its vulnerabilities regarding the security of the OS. Is it very difficult to implement 2FA via google authenticator in this forum. I am not saying its perfect but it gives to your account security a substantial boost up to 99% more security.

P.S Sorry if I posted in the wrong section but this seemed like the correct one for pointing out the importance of 2FA .

It looks like 2FA might be implemented in epochtalk : https://github.com/slickage/epochtalk/blob/master/app/templates/login.html

If it is, i don't think the admin will implement 2FA in SMF, since they've been planning on moving to epochtalk for a long time now.

The forum is moving to a new site that is well under construction, I believe there will be added security henceforth.
