Webmail 2FA

As we know cPanel has Two-Factor Authentication now, however the Webmail login and accounts don't. I've never seen this done but surely this isn't impossible. This would be good to secure accounts via Webmail login for things that are used for financial institutions, etc.

Doesn't POP/IMAP/SMTP also use the same passwords as webmail? That would mean users would need to enter an OTP (where exactly?) every time they try to send/read mail using other email clients which have no concept of 2FA. Or am I understanding your concept wrong?

If we added 2FA to the Webmail interface we would be taking mail applications (especially across so many devices) into consideration when implementing the feature. I can think of a couple other providers have around it, but ultimately it would be up to the feature team that implements the change to decide how we go about it.

Hi Benny, Anything new? I think it's important to have a second barrier to massive login attacks on email accounts. :)

No updates yet, but if there is we'll definitely let everyone know here. :)

How about using something like Google's reCaptcha API
