I for one am glad 2FA was added as an option. My ARIN account was rendered unreachable multiple times due to someone trying my email/account too many times, never successful mind you, but each time I had to open a ticket with ARIN to get my account re-enabled. I have not had this problem at all since 2FA was added as an option and I enabled it.

Long time ARIN Tech/Admin POC for Virginia Tech.
