Disable Wikitech 2FA for User:Rich Smith
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Please disable 2FA on my Wikitech account. I believe it was on an old Google Authenticator which has long since gone.

My Wikimedia account is also 2FA protected so I can make an edit on my userpage on EN WP if needed for validation.

Usually the easiest identity verification method is "Have the user write a request to disable 2fa in their home directory on a CloudVPS/Toolforge bastion." One way to do this:

$ ssh
$ cd $HOME
$ touch 2fa-reset-request.txt
$ chmod 0600 2fa-reset-request.txt
$ echo "" > 2fa-reset-request.txt
$ echo "$(hostname -f):$(pwd)/2fa-reset-request.txt"

Then come back here and make a comment including the output of the last command.
