Nextcloud 15 2FA issues

Just install Nextcloud 15 on my raspberry pi board. Everything installed nicely with a few tweeks. The only issue I’m having right now is I can’t seem to get 2FA working properly. If I enforce 2FA, the only option is to use the backup codes as 2FA. I was hoping for another option other than backup codes. Am I missing something? Do I need to install/configure something else?

Depends what you want to use as a second factor. Just install the corresponding app (or write your own if you are missing a method). Here a few (just some examples, no complete list!):

Got it. Sorry for the noobie question. Lots to learn. Loving the app. Would like a 2FA that emails a code just in case of phone loss. Is there an app for that?

Thanks again. :grinning:

Just check the app store, there you can find a lot of stuff. For more information about an app, there are links to the code (where you can see a more detailed description):

Just found it. It is an unstable app. I upgraded to 15.0.2 thinking that it might be there and not luck. The app authentication is not not supported by 15.0.2. Not a big deal, I can still use it. Still everything is working fine so far. Just have to master the backups and I’m gold.

Still the best app for a Dropbox replacement I’ve seen ever. I would like to be an active member of the community to further the development of this app on the Raspberry Pi for the home user.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi SimpleRick,
how do you get this app working in Nextcloud 15?
Thanks a lot

No I didn’t. The developer stopped working on it and doesn’t have any plans to either. I thought about working on it, but time is always a problem during the summer.

I’ve been using Google Authenticator for the time being.

O.k., thanks for the info :wink:

how can I use Google Authenticator for nextcloud…thank you
