2FA enabling for admin account

Currently, by design, the 2FA login (if enabled) does not apply to the Admin account(s).  These authenticate with a local password and no 2FA.

However, this is less secure, particularly since this is an admin account.

I would like to be able to (optionally) enable 2FA for admin accounts as well as for the normal local or LDAP users, so that we can have optimum security.  Thus, once we have 2FA working, I can flip a configuration switch and view the QR code for admin, and then need to use the 2FA for admin logins from that point forwards.


You can edit file "sources/identify.php" and replace :

if (isset($_SESSION['settings']['google_authentication']) && $_SESSION['settings']['google_authentication'] == 1 && $username !== "admin") {


if (isset($_SESSION['settings']['google_authentication']) && $_SESSION['settings']['google_authentication'] == 1) {

And after it works.

Yes, I think that works (will try it next week).  It would be better to have this as a user-configurable option though, rather than having to modify the code.

Sure, It will be better, but I'm not TeamPass developer :( I fixed only this issue.
