    Hello,

    I am the root WHM admin of a server, I have just enabled two-factor auth and all works well.

    However, several of our developers access the same accounts. How can each of them have their own TFA? It would be massibely unusable that a single person (yours truly) has the codes and everyone must get them for each login. What are the alternatives?

    Cheers

    Hi @hector_super,

    When setting up the 2FA, you will have prompt like below:

    To have the key on multiple devices or 2FA clients, you'll need to enter the key provided at the bottom. If you don't want to reset the key, you can find it at `/var/cpanel/authn/twofactor_auth/tfa_userdata.json'.

    Thanks,
