With privacyIDEA ownCloud App version 2.5.1 you gain an even more flexible authentication at ownCloud with a second factor. Users can have more tokens and also more of those so called challenge response-tokens like U2F, Email or SMS. privacyIDEA can handle any combination and the user can choose if he wants to authenticate e.g. with SMS or U2F.
Weeker 2nd factors like SMS are sometimes used as temporary backup for a lost more secure token or are used during an enrollment process.
The privacyIDEA ownCloud App in version 2.5.1 is now available in the ownCloud marketplace for an easy update.
