No. You don’t.  You can use a yubi key and or a totp tool like google Authenticator or 1Password etc. no phones required

I think I might get cut off.

Is it not still the case that github's 2fa needs a program running on a
mobile phone, or an SMS-capable mobile phone? Is there any support for
normal tools running on a normal Linux machine?

(I think last time I tried to use the SMS route, it refused to send SMS
messages to my landline, despite the fact that I can receive them)

After talking with several folks, feedback has been that best practices are to make sure the notice is a week before hand. 

So what I’ll do is personally reach out to those who aren’t 2fa enabled in the Haskell gh org (and haven’t commented on this thread )and ask them to enable 2fa on their GitHub account. Perhaps I should attach a 2fa options explainer ! 

I’ll look at folks responses and if everyone active has made the switch over, I’ll look to do a transition next Monday or Tuesday. 


If best practices are to wait a week... shouldn't we wait a week? There's no fire here.
