It makes sense. the LAN is generally more secure then the network that encompass the entire planet and which included the International space station.
So for the NAS’s that allow access to the Dashboard UI, so allow assigning 2-factor a NAS’s account and if the device that is connecting to the dashboard login screen has 2FA enabled and it’s IP address is not within the local area network then a user-name. password and a code from an authenticator app would be required.
You may ask; “What if the authenticator app corrupts and won’t generate the time-based 6 digit code, thus locking user out of an account.” That’s not a problem because all that would be needed is to access the account on the NAS from within the local area network. The 2FA code would then not be needed and the user will be able to disable or reset the account’s 2FA key.
Now, the question is how does one get a stupid amount of votes for this idea for WD to take notice of this idea and apply this to a future firmware update?
Anyone got any suggestions?
