Several users received an email on how to unlock their account. Due to a brute force login attack, accounts are automatically locked after a number of failed attempts. We recommend to regularly change passwords and use 2FA whenever possible. If you would like to activate 2-factor authentication on Gitlab, you can do so by logging in and then to Preferences -> Account. You will need an "authenticator" app and a compatible phone (we do not support SMS codes on Gitlab). If you have further questions regarding online safety, please check the website https://www.tudelft.nl/en/privacy-security.
