XF 1.5 Make Two Factor Auth Optional?

I just updated to XF 1.5 and I got a report from one of my users:

I can't edit my profile and click 'save changes' without it telling me to enter all required fields, meaning I have to enter the info for the two-step verification before I can edit my profile details.

How can we make two factor auth optional when saving profile?

It is already optional, unless you have set this permission:


Otherwise, members need to explicitly enable it in their account settings.

Two-step verification is on its own page. The error your user is receiving would be related to them not filling out a required profile field.
