SMS Password Recovery

Vas 8 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 7 years ago 1

For those who want to bind their phone to their account for password recovery (or other purposes should notifications on the site allow users to toggle sms on), allowing them to have multiple methods other than just some email to recover a password or should an email become comprimised or an account be hijacked, the phone can serve as an alternate way to get your account back either by reset code sms or just proving your identity via phone.


We haven't had a large demand for this. While it's a good idea, it likely would take a large amount of work for something that might not be used too often. If more people did want this option in the future, we could definitely consider it again.
