Implications for 3rd party authentication since Tesla added Captcha

When was the Captcha added to account login?

I noticed a few days ago when Teslamate required a new token (maybe unrelated) and failed with:

Error: :mfa_input_not_found

It was added last week. Self-hosted stuff seems to need to use a refresh token that you can provide (I’m doing that with TeslaScope) - and that seems to work. Phone apps seem to be fine so far.
I just started TeslaMate since I want to keep all data under my control, but like how many features TeslaScope has (and interface is neater than TeslaMate). Do you know where TeslaScope stores all your data? I couldn't find it on Google/their website
