No more application specific passwords.

    1. I already have 2FA enabled on my account. I haven’t poked around to see if it can be enabled from the console. I’m betting not.

      The password prompt mentions “account password”. 2FA is not mentioned at all. I was left to guess how specific the word “account” is. I tried with an existing app specific and then a fresh app specific first, just to see if they would work. Nope. Your real password followed by authenticator code.
