You are the only person in this thread (on kde-core-devel) who has voiced 
their disagreement with using 2FA and who demand its immediate deactivation. 
Why do you think a single person (you) who isn't tasked with keeping our 
infrastructure and the data stored thereon secure should be able to decide 

I for one applaud the requirement to use 2FA on invent. I would love to see 
this on more websites.

And, for what it's worth, since invent keeps personal information and since 
the GDPR requires using state-of-the-art technology to protect personal 
information, using 2FA is, in my opinion (but I'm not a lawyer), a must for 
any website that stores personal information.
