2FA.. another year?

The last time I read about it (and it was almost done) was some months ago (January), and it seems the history repeats itself: nothing until now.
Are you going to "finally" offer 2FA soon or not?.
I think you are getting some people tired of waiting, years. I am sorry to tell you this, but it affects your credibility too.
Thanks

Also the official webmail is not that good. wish you improve it, something like gmail looks more professional.

I have to use roundcube instead. which is really slow though.

I signed another year of subscription thinking 2FA would be finished soon. Since then I am forwarding all my RB,s emails to another email address in a different company offering 2FA.
I don't want to finish the new subscription/year without 2FA again...

I was wondering when this was going to start up again. First, let me say that I am fine with the "updated" web mail client and find it to be fast and efficient and it now looks modern and clean. Could it use additional tweaks, YES. Second, I am looking forward to 2FA and calendaring like many other customers, but I have learned long ago to simply be EXTREMELY patient and the RunBox team will deliver. Would an ETA be nice, heck yeah!!!

I understand what you say... In fact sometimes I feel sad because I love RB and its service, but this was my last post about 2FA and I hope RB will do something about it soon.

The project was "almost finished" just over 2 months ago, so . . .

We've had significant progress and have finalized development of our 2FA web interface, which will include functionality for turning services on/off, Two-Step Verification, One-Time Passwords, Trusted Devices, and Application-Specific Passwords.

We have also spent time improving our new authentication service (which is the foundation for 2FA), to make sure it scales in our production environment.

What remains is mostly to handle a couple of legacy interfaces to make all of our services use the authentication service instead of native/custom authentication.

Then we will do some thorough testing, after which we can gradually deploy in production and invite some beta testers.

Hopefully some users from this forum will be invited to beta test?

No, that's incorrect.

I think that's being overly pessimistic -- I'd say we're 90-95% there development-wise now.

The main remaining problem has been our legacy IMAP service (Courier), which we had planned to retire by the end of 2015. However, it turned out that it was too painful for many of our customers to transition to the new IMAP service (Dovecot) as it required deleting the account from the client and setting it up from scratch.

To not cause service disruptions for these customers we decided to keep Courier around after all. This meant that Courier would have to be modified to use the new authentication service as well, to prevent it from being a backdoor past 2FA.

However, since your post we've had significant progress on this end as well, and we don't see any further major roadblocks.

By the way, the authentication service itself is already in production and is running happily with Dovecot, which is a login-intensive service. So we are fairly confident this will turn out well, and in the near future.
