How to disable TFA from the CLI on Proxmox

Linux, Security

This took me hours and hours of research to work out how to disable lost TFA on an account on Proxmox.

I was only experimenting on a test server, however I wanted to ensure I knew how to recover it if I enabled TFA on my root user. Console access isn’t subject to this additional check allowing the root user to login and run the following command to remove TFA for itself or another user.
