We are continuing to investigate the issue, and have determined that 2 Factor Authentication is affected.

As an immediate workaround, we suggest contacting your Help Scout Administrator to request a recovery code to login. Further instructions on how to access recovery codes, here: https://docs.helpscout.com/article/907-set-up-two-factor-authentication#recovery
