Reset 2FA for AlvaroMolina in Phabricator
Closed, ResolvedPublic


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@Aklapper I followed that page before arriving here, however, the procedures on that page are outdated since, for example, the link in the second step does not work.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 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the procedures on that page are outdated since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:
