All the steps seem to be self documenting. I clicked on my avatar and the it's under "Password and security". Click the " Change" button next to disabled in the two factor Sexton at the top and follow the prompts.

Nice feature to have, but https is more of a pressing security issue unless it's going to become compulsory.

I agree, two-factor perhaps overkill for a site such as this, unless of course you share your passwords between different sites (which I'm sure no-one does!).
However, using a general site SSL cert gives users confidence that the site is being run by a responsible and serious organisation.

How is the 2 factor handled? If by text then there are the cost of sending the texts. Ditto phone (voice). That leaves email. Agree that 2 factor is probably overkill. Good to see https is coming.
