Improve account security

Hello,

as of today, device verification is mandatory for all members. What exactly does that mean now? With each login you will receive an e-mail with a link. Click on this link to confirm the login or your new device. You can then continue to use the page as usual. First of all, there will be no option to deactivate this.


In consultation with the members of the "Verified" group, 2FA has been made mandatory for this group. This should be noted by future applicants for this group.


In some time this site will also support passwordless authentication using the new W3C standard WebAuthn. For more information about WebAuthn, take a look at this article from @Hanashi.


In addition, guests can now only read the first three posts on the website and only the channel #general and #off-topic on the discord. If you want to read more, you have to register and/or link your Discord account.


Best regards

Titus Kirch
