We're in the middle of 2021 and still no two-factor authentication

Stinkee Beek says:

Hi Flickr,

Love the work that the Flickr Team is putting in to keep the site going, but it's mid-2021 and there's still no news about when 2FA will arrive. Come on.

We hear about security breaches all over the Net. Given how much Flickr members invest their time, effort and creativity into their art, shouldn't Flickr put a higher priority on delivering 2FA?

If it was introduced, I hope it would be optional.

Hi there,

We take security very seriously here at Flickr, and aim to protect our members whenever possible from being exposed to any security risks.

Our new login system was built with Two Factor Authentication support in mind. While planned, we still have work to do on the remaining aspects of 2FA such as advanced account recovery options.

In the meantime, you can help us keep your account safe by using a password that is strong and unique to your Flickr account.

We recommend using a password manager, such as 1Password, to generate and help keep track of your lengthy password.
