Disabling 2FA in local Magento 2 development

There seems to be some confusion around how to disable 2FA in a local Magento 2 environment, or, more specifically, how difficult it is.

It’s just one command

I’m not sure why modules out there exist for this. So I thought it would be fun to post this as a quick guide.

Protip: If you’re using DDEV, consider making an alias in your home additions folder for this.

Pro Pro Tip: If you’re like me, you won’t do the easy thing and instead you’ll just do CTRL+R and type ‘Two’ after having done this command once, and it will be the first thing that pops up. Usually.

bin/magento module:disable Magento_AdminAdobeImsTwoFactorAuth Magento_TwoFactorAuth
bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento setup:di:compile

Ok so maybe that’s 3 commands. But you can totally make it as a single thing.

That’s it! You’re done.

In my local, I’ll use my dance alias instead of the setup:upgrade, etc, but you get the idea.
