Community Tech/2FA available for all concerned editors

Proposed in the 2019 Wishlist Survey.

This page documents a project the Wikimedia Foundation's Community Tech team has worked on or declined in the past. Technical work on this project is complete.

We invite you to join the discussion on the talk page. You may track this project's progress on T166622.



Problem: Available 2FA for all concerned editors. Everyone should have additional security on their account if they so desire. Why is it just limited to users with advanced permissions?

Status updates


After analyzing the wish, the Community Tech team has decided to decline the wish. It is unfortunately out of scope and dependent upon the work of other teams. You can read more about our rationale in the 2019 wishlist status report.
