I need to change my e-mail address but the one I want to change it to is banned by admin?
Post in FCD and I'm sure an admin can sort something
Start a thread in FCD please.
There are loads of such examples on YouTube, for example. They get into one account (say, OcUK). From there, they find your mobile number and call your provider and blag your email address and/or home address. Then they link those to find your social networks, then (maybe using dumped data or known exploits or social engineering) get into those and your email accounts... and it's all downhill from there.
Here's one quick demo. Once you have a mobile number, and an email address, or a single account login that has some personal info (such as an email address in the profile/settings) it's game over. It's possible to basically ruin your life and get access to almost anything. Enable. MFA. Everywhere.
Post this on 4chan and seeI would hope that most of the frequent posters on this forum wouldn't fall for most of those tricks. You'd have to be really lacking in any security practices to fall for all of those.
Either way it's very interesting / eye opening. I'm pretty confident everything i use online is heavily locked down, so would be interested to see how far someone would get trying to get access to my data.
As been said before in the thread. It is needed to protect those that using the Members Market, but since it can't be separated at the moment, the whole of the forum is needing the 2FA function.What the point of 2FA on forum for? I can understand if you using it for shopping account online but seriously do u really need it for forum?
Jeez, my 30 days just kicked in. I had to grab my phone and input a 6 digit code that took me like 10 seconds to do. It's such and inconvenience that I have to do this again in 30 days.
How would you feel if someone managed to compromise your account, posted an MM thread and actually managed to get a member to pay them for some non existent items?What the point of 2FA on forum for?

If that happened, we’d basically close the MM. There would be no trust in the system whatsoever.
