It's not just about setting it up, I only got 2 days warning about
this, and I'm in a bit of a crunch to setup a proper client on my
mobile device right now. I also can't find a thing for OTP in
KeepassXC, and I keep 2 copies of my clients in an ugly manner between
my desktop and laptop so I'd rather do mobile, but there may be times
where my mobile device _breaks_ or something, so I don't always like
storing such things on mobile...

I don't really think the execution of this was done well. I am
confident enough with a pretty secure password generated with
KeepassXC, to not think I need 2FA this instant.
