Reset 2FA for AlvaroMolina in Phabricator
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hi, a few days ago my phone failed and I had to reset it from the factory, because of that I lost the application provided by the 2FA codes to log in to Phabricator. Right now I can't deactivate 2FA by myself in Phabricator and I fear losing access to my account if the session is closed, and since recovery codes are not provided here as in MediaWiki, I have no way to remove 2FA from my Phabricator account. I hope you can help me. Thanks!

I think @mmodell is the only one that can do this, but E784...

Correction: @Aklapper (phabricator-admin) and @demon and @mmodell (phabricator-roots) can do this.

No reason to CC everybody - it's up to folks whether they follow this project tag or not. :)

@Aklapper I followed that page before arriving here, however, the procedures on that page are outdated since, for example, the link in the second step does not work. On the other hand, I have a Committed Identity on my user page in Meta, I do not know if it is possible to do anything with that.

@Aklapper can create a private paste visible to him and you only, unless he wants to follow another path. Indeed https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/paste/create/ is 404 and private pastes can only be created by people included in some acl*s.

the procedures on that page are outdated since

Thanks , I've updated the steps so they should work now.

@Aklapper I can not access the form. It says "Access Denied: Restricted Edit Configuration".

I guess it'd be easier if @Aklapper created the paste himself and then instruct @AlvaroMolina how to proceed. I was about to create the paste myself with the restrictions required, but I think that I, as author, will always be able to see it so it won't work for this.

If he has access to the form, I could privately give @Aklapper the text (by IRC or mail) so he could create the paste and speed it up.

@Aklapper Thanks! I've finally managed to create the paste P6383

Aklapper claimed this task.

Thanks! more foo | sha512sum with foo being P6383 worked so I've strippped 2FA.

aklapper@phab1001:~$ sudo /srv/phab/phabricator/bin/auth strip --all-types --user AlvaroMolina
These auth factors will be stripped:
