It leads to the shop but the forum and shop log ins have never been shared between the two (IIRC the closest is if you enter your username on the shop it checks to see if you're eligible for free shipping).So the Overclockers logo at the top isn't a passage to the shop. Right plan B
There's a lot of money changing hands in the member's market. There is no way to specify a granular level of control for those who don't want to use it (and by proxy give up their right to use the MM), so it's on for everyone.I guess ultimately 2FA is worth it for stuff that matters ( emails, bank accounts). A forum where you can post stuff and that's about it feels a little overkill for forced 2FA?
But Is this now mandetory?
I really don’t know why folk are getting their knickers in a twist here. I already use the MS Authenticator App for work so took seconds to add OcUK. Punch in a code once a month. Why all the drama?
It would be a trivial task in XenForo to only allow access to MM if you have 2FA enabled. Problem is that if someone's account is stolen then the hacker can just enable 2FA themselves to gain access. I'd suggest giving people the option to permanently disable MM access on their accounts to remove the 2FA requirement.There is no way to specify a granular level of control for those who don't want to use it (and by proxy give up their right to use the MM), so it's on for everyone.
