Hi guys,

Is it possible to disable 2FA via SSH>root?

Considering creating a Feature Request as I lost my phone the other week and thought I was stuffed. Luckily I found it again shortly after!

It worked perfectly! Just as a test so I can rely on it in future if I have to, I ran that command as root and logged back into WHM and Security Center > Two-Factor Authentication was Disabled.

[[email protected] /]# whmapi1 twofactorauth_disable_policy
---
metadata:
command: twofactorauth_disable_policy
reason: OK
result: 1
version: 1

Much appreciated, Infopro. All sorted :)

Just a quick FYI on top of my last post;

When you're back into WHM and go back to Security Center > Two-Factor Authentication, before you Enable it again, go to Manage My Account and click Remove Two-Factor Authentication (for WHM) or you'll be immediately asked for the code you don't have (unless you screenshotted the QR originally I suppose) :p
