eBay now support 2fa over SMS only, no longer uses the Symantec VIP soft token

they seem pretty worthless at documentation.

I've tweeted at them, hopefully they'll show us some documentation soon!

I'll try to update this thread with whatever they tell me!

Since that link works, and it's being emailed around by eBay and 2FA enthusiasts, why "Pending"?

eBay now supports 2FA by SMS.

@melvynm Only works for existing 2fa users. Users who didn't have the feature before won't be able to turn it on

@stephengroat Your link works fine even with eBay Italy; just replace both instances of ebay.com with ebay.it in the URL. Thanks!

@fturco I used the .com link to switch on 2FA for my .co.uk account so I don't think it even matters?

I was able to sign up for 2FA and I didn't have it enabled previously. I can't believe they make it so hard to find the link to do it.

While setting up 2FA may work, if it is completely undocumented and requires some convoluted link to set up that must be shared around and is not easily accessible to a normal user, I would be hesitant to list the link publicly in case eBay decides to kill the feature completely or makes changes in the back-end that could potentially break this "not officially supported" feature.
