Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am trying to both login in:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I had no problem in accessing before. I created the 2fa_reset.txt in marcmiquel account in toolforge, not in the wcdo tool account.

The problem is the access to this:

@marcmiquel you will need to re-enable two-factor authentication for your account through wikitech before you can authenticate to Horizon. Please do copy down the recovery tokens this time. :)
