    Hi all,

    Two factor authentication (2FA) has now been enabled on the hubs for everybody to use. This feature gives added security to your accounts in-case they are compromised by another party. Our current implementation uses the Google Authenticator APP which is available on the Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store. To enable the feature, enter the lobby server (via relogging or /server lobby) and type /auth. You will be presented with instructions on how to activate 2FA.

    Current options for the plugin are as follows:
    • /auth - Starts the authentication process
    • /auth off - Disables 2FA
    • /auth ipenable - Enables IP based authentication, you will only be asked for your code when your IP changes
    • /auth ipdisable - Disables IP based authentication

    Here is what happens when you type /auth in our lobbies:

    You'll be given instructions on how to stop the process, as well as installing the Google Authenticator app

    Once the app is installed, you will be given a QR code to scan

    The QR code is in the form of a map, open the app and scan it to create a new entry in your app

    Once you have the scanned entry, you can proceed and enter your code

    At this point your authentication is already enabled, and you can choose to enable IP-based authentication

    Thanks,
    iPvP Administration
